Alleluia, He Lives! (choral octavo)

By Joel Raney

http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/alleluia-he-lives-choral-octavo-sheet-music/19726049

SATB choir with optional handbells & brass quartet
Composed by Joel Raney. Easter, Sacred. Octavo. 12 pages. Published by Hope Publishing Company (HP.C5731).

Item Number: HP.C5731

Text by Joel Raney. Scriptural Reference: Matthew 28:1-10, Mark 16:1-8, Luke 24:1-12, John 20:1-9, 1 Corinthians 15:1-28, Romans 6:9-10, Mark 14:62, 1 Peter 3:22.

For Easter day, this spirited anthem by Joel Raney combines voices with organ or piano and optional brass and handbells in a glorious exclamation that the risen King lives! An appearance of Beethoven's HYMN TO JOY in the middle section adds to the joyous effectiveness of this dynamic setting.

This item is the choral octavo only. The Instrumental packet (sold separately) contains a Conductor's Score and parts for: B-flat Trumpets 1 & 2, Trombones 1 & 2 (or Horn in lieu of Trombone 1), and 3 octave handbells (D5-C7).

    We have a 15 voice choir and they sounded great on this anthem. Voice leading is fine overall. There are a couple divisi parts for sopranos, but I actually wish there were more, since not all our folks can hit notes above the staff. Tenor parts were also on the...

    high side. The rhythms are straight forward and logical and provide a nice drive. The "Hymn to Joy" section in the middle was a crowd pleaser. The biggest thing to be aware of is that the accompaniment is most definitely intended to be played on the organ. I had to get creative to get it to work on a piano. But the accompaniment is a real asset to the piece--very catchy and supports the choir well.

    The product was ordered and arrived very well packaged and as promised. This is a great song that we will be doing just after Easter with a portion of our orchestra and our hand bell choir. Can't wait to sing this!

    Very good for Easter. The instrumental parts may be challenging for the beginning player.
