You will ADORE Lloyd Larson's amazing gospel arrangement of Beethoven's immortal chorus! It opens slowly with a blues ad lib vocal solo before breaking into an upbeat, driving chorus full of gospel harmonies, punctuated by syncopated rhythms and a terrific keyboard accompaniment. It climaxes with another solo ad lib, sung three times as sections of the choir join in. The brass and rhythm parts add to the excitement. Guaranteed to be the highlight of the year, it's great for worship and concerts, also appropriate for Christmastide, Eastertide and Lent. Available in 3 voicings for singers of all ages.
