Joel Raney's setting of this timeless hymn of praise portrays the power and majesty of the triune God. A variety of musical forces combine to capture the heart & soul of this great and mighty hymn, including SATB voices, piano, organ, flute, timpani and 3-5 octaves of handbells. The effective use of compound meter (12/8), contrasted with common meter (4/4), along with both major and minor modes, are all brought together in this magnificent presentation. The Instrumental packet contains a Conductor's Score and parts for Organ, Flute, Timpani & 3-5 Oct. Handbells w/opt. 3-5 Oct. Handchimes.
