LASST UNS ERFREUEN is artfully arranged to accentuate the grandiose quality of the melody. Full of great textural variety, the work opens with a rich handbell and Brass statement of the hymn that is followed by a unison singing, which can be joined by the congregation. To contrast this lush timbre, the choir then splits into four parts and has the option of singing the second chorus a cappella. The full compliment of instruments return for the jubilant final chorus and an exhilarating "Amen".
