A regal celebration of a time-honored hymn is displayed in this festive arrangement! Classic brass motives define the introduction, raising the curtain on a joyful unison presentation of the well-known ELLACOMBE theme. A graceful middle verse offers a pleasing contrast of interesting choral textures, giving directors an opportunity for interpretive freedom. Driving to a climactic conclusion, the anthem explodes in a sensational sonic moment worthy of cathedral or concert hall.
