Launching a new Concertato Series, this festival hymn setting for SATB choirs with optional Brass and Congregation is ideal for Palm Sunday, Easter, and general worship. Arranger, Paul Leddington Wright, who is well-known in the UK for the BBC television series, Songs of Praise, is a master at leading congregational song. With this flexible, straight-forward setting, he offers plenty of dignity and poise, all capped by a brief but grand instrumental coda. Brass parts include conductor's score, trumpets (2 B-flat), trombone, horn (in F), tuba, and percussion.
