Item Number: HP.C5073

This captivating Palm Sunday anthem from Mary Kay Beall makes effective use of mode shifts from major to minor to alternately represent the coming gloom and the "Hosannas" the crown sang as Jesus rode into Jerusalem. John Carter's SATB setting has expanded the piano accompaniment and heightened the overall impact.

    The description is correct. The sung swings from MAJOR to MINOR several times. With dynamics, this is a very powerful piece to hear. I always look for different pieces than normal for our traditional service based choir. This is a good one. Not difficult to sing, but the string of...

    16th notes does require singers to pay attention to diction. The entry into Jerusalem was a positive powerful message, sung in a MAJOR key. But looking ahead to he cross, the song switches to a MINOR. And back in forth. But for Palm Sunday, it ends in triumph and the MAJOR key. Worth buying.

    I am always looking for something a little different for our church choir to sing. (More Traditional than Contemporary service) I like this piece because is flips between MAJOR and MINOR keys several times. The Triumphant entry is positive and in the MAJOR. But looking to the cross, the song...

    switches to a MINOR. And back and forth it goes. The song is not difficult to sing or learn, although there are a bunch of 16th notes strung together forcing proper diction. Worth the price. Recommend.
