Festival Hosanna by Mary Lynn Lightfoot. For TTBB choir. Octavo. Published by Heritage Music Press (LO.15-1518H).
This exceptional work offers driving rhythmic excitement from the opening choral fanfare to the exalted conclusion. Combining a traditional Latin text, mixed meters, and syncopation, it sings easily and sounds gloriously full. Commissioned by the 1999 North Carolina Middle School Honor Choir, it is equally appropriate for school or church use. Also available: Three-part Mixed/SATB (15/1517H).
