BP1629, SSAA, $2.00
Electric, energetic, exciting – this anthem is all of these and more! Hayes gives Isaac Watts’ familiar hymn text the royal treatment with his original score. He uses meter changes and syncopation throughout, and builds the piece around a wonderfully rhythmic melody. Contrast is found in each verse through legato sections featuring satisfying chord progressions in lush four-part harmony. The bridge is particularly dynamic, alternating between 6/8 and 3/4 meters, with 4-part voicing building from piano to fortissimo. This leads to a return of the melody, broadened by augmentation and followed by a rousing finish. The part writing is straightforward, making this piece accessible to most choirs. Parts for brass and percussion are available if you wish to enhance the rhythmically challenging piano accompaniment. Suitable for any service, this one is a must for the library of any high school, college, or community women’s chorus
