Celebrate the gift of music with this bright offering based on passages from the Psalms. The trumpet sounds a distinctive opening gesture that leaps with confidence, inviting the choir to join. The music, which incorporates All Creatures of Our God and King, moves into more lyrical passages to match the flow of the text, adding variety and dynamic contrast. As the work crescendos to its finale, a modulation carries the “alleluias” to glorious heights. Festive!
