From a composite text derived from Psalms 148 and 150 and a 19th Century hymn tune by Charles Hubert Hasting Parry, Hal Hopson has fashioned a grand, festive anthem of praise to the creator. The vocal parts are very manageable (much of the piece is unison - only the 2nd stanza and the final cadence are in parts), and the additional instrumental resources, while not required, will enhance the effect of grandeur that Mr. Hopson intends. There is also a descant on Stanza 4. Moderately easy. General Church/Festival occasion.
