Gloria! To God Sing Gloria! composed by Lloyd Larson. For SATB choir, piano (with optional orchestration). Sacred Anthem, Christmas. Octavo. Published by Lorenz Publishing Company (LO.10-3730L).
Exciting opening and closing fanfares herald the glad Christmas tidings in this regal carol medley by celebrated composer, Lloyd Larson. Following the opening acclamation, the choir sings in unison the pastoral strains of "While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks." Next, "He Is Born, the Divine Christ Child" increases the joyous celebration. Then, this carol partners with "Hark! the Herald Angels Sing" as the choral texture builds to the festive closing! In two voicings with optional orchestral accompaniment, this medley is filled with the spirit of Christmas. (From the cantata "And Glory Shone Around;" SATB -- 65/1993L, SAB -- 65/1994L.).
