Goin' Up to Glory by Sally K. Albrecht and Jay Althouse. Choir Secular. 3-Part Mixed Choir (SAB). Choral Octavo. Choral Designs. Gospel; Spiritual. Choral Octavo. 12 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.21798).
In the unmistakable style of the great gospel quartets comes this unforgettable contemporary original spiritual by Sally Albrecht and Jay Althouse. Features thrilling rhythmic syncopations, full a cappella chords, and the traditional strains of In That Great Gettin' Up Mornin' as a bonus. By the time the sopranos add their energized descant on the last verse, your entire audience will be singin' "Glory Hallelu!" And it's equally inspiring in the SSAB arrangement for choirs with more women than men.
