Natalie Sleeth's popular choral anthem and hymn, also known as "In the Bulb There Is a Flower," has been given a lovely new treatment by Tom Fettke for SATB choirs. The provocative text relates both to our present life and our hope of eternal life, as expressed in I Corinthians 15:35-58. This fresh setting emphasizes the resurrected life as it builds to the final "victory" stanza with driving rhythm and a change to common meter (4/4). This arrangement is also available in a medium-voice vocal solo in the key of F.
