How Firm a Foundation by Larry Shackley. For SATB choir, piano. Sacred Anthem, All Saints' Day, General, Reformation. Octavo. Published by Lorenz Publishing Company (LO.10-4168L).
Larry Shackley has created a bright, energetic arrangement that captures the "spirit of Americana" in this celebrated nineteenth-century American hymn. Shades of Copland color the beautiful accompaniment as choral parts sing of the firm foundation that is God. Each verse of this anthem builds throughout until closing with reflective affirmations above the opening motif.
