Though originally written for the Christmas cantata, Canticle of Joy, the text of this joyful anthem is appropriate for any and every day of the year! The “song” we sing is that of God's incredible love for us. Love transcending, never ending! Love excelling, never failing.... “In Every Land Begin the Song” is primarily SAB, making it accessible to smaller choirs. A wonderful, triumphant melody with a joyful text and neo-classical accompaniment make this piece a delight to sing. You won't have to remind your choir to smile with this one – it is exciting! In every land begin the song, let alleluias fill the air!
