35009547, SATB with soprano or tenor solo, $2.50
This venerable vocal classic is reborn in this epic new arrangement for high voice solo and SATB chorus. Hayes has taken this piece way beyond the original version through the use of creative re-harmonization, elongation of phrases, dramatic modulations and a truly cinematic orchestration. This is a showpiece for your best high voice soloist with a glorious choral backup. Hayes artfully paints a musical picture with the piano accompaniment in both bold and intimate strokes. It is challenging, but worth the extra effort to prepare it. Although there is some divisi, choral ranges are not extreme. Consider programming it during the Lenten or Easter season or as a general anthem.
