For Advent, this classic anthem from William P. Rowan is a best-selling chestnut in the Hope catalog. The original setting for SATB or Two Part choirs is in the key of B-flat, while this new SAB voicing has been lowered a step, making it more accessible for the smaller church choir. The accompaniment works equally well for either piano or organ, and the addition of optional soloists makes this an inviting choice for Advent.
