This is more of a production piece than a congregational “sing along”.

This is an anthem or special number not meant for congregational singing. It could be used for congregational singing but would require a very hip congregation and a very good conductor because of the interludes and modulations. This is a trumpet players choice for church performances for it has some great “meaty” parts which will make a good trumpet player happy.

Each part has some challenging sections and is the type of chart trumpet players wait for.
Starts big, middle section calms down a little and continues to build to near the end and closes quietly.

This is a piece which will have many compliments, except for the deaf old lady in the front row that doesn’t want anything louder than a mp.
