Joel Raney gives this beloved chestnut a fresh and contemporary treatment. Built on a lilting piano accompaniment, this SATB anthem incorporates both an original 'round,' "Alleluia, He Lives" by Raney, and the well-loved "Because He Lives" by Bill & Gloria Gather. The addition of the optional organ part turns the accompaniment into a thrilling piano-organ duet.
