Harold Flammner Music35014691, SATB with children’s choir and congreg. refrain, $2.50 This spirited anthem is perfect for festivals incorporating the entire choir program, from adults, to youth, to children. Partwriting is very accessible, keeping to mostly SAB with occasional SATB writing, and making this well-suited to junior and high school choirs or smaller adult choirs. The text, by John Parker, speaks of the connection between music and God’s creation in nature. We are called to worship and to join our voices in this universal song of praise. The well-known hymn tune, ELLACOMBE, is used in the middle of this anthem, providing a perfect opportunity for congregational involvement. The melody is spirited and engaging, infusing the entire anthem with a bright and “up” mood, suitable for traditional and contemporary services alike. The piano accompaniment is further enhanced by an optional flute obbligato, which is included with the octavo.
