Where the Promise Shines composed by Bob Moore. For solo voice/SATB choir, B-flat and C trumpet. Christmastide, Epiphany, Christmas. Sacred. 12 pages. Published by GIA Publications (GI.G-6080).
Sylvia Dunstan's expansive images take us from Advent all the way through Christmastide in this dazzling song for Epiphany.
Its American gospel feel has an appeal and momentum that will sweep the assembly right into the optional refrain, "lead us on to a morning where the promise shines."
A part for heralding trumpet is included, or an arrangement for string quintet is available separately.
This piece deserves a triple "wow"!
