Hosanna in the Streets by Pepper Choplin. For SATB choir, piano (with optional orchestration (trumpet, percussion)). Sacred Anthem, Palm/Palm-Passion Sunday. Octavo. 16 pages. Published by Lorenz Publishing Company (LO.10-4059L).
With pulsating energy, Pepper Choplin's creative genius vividly conveys the excitement and the tension of the crowd as Jesus rode through the Jerusalem streets. There are opportunities for soloists in this anthem and the option of using trumpet and percussion or full orchestra for accompaniment. Questions from the people are answered with shouts of affirmation in this perfect choice for Palm Sunday. (From the cantata "Come, Touch the Robe" SATB--55/1123L; SAB--55/1124L).
