SATB choir with optional unison choir (or vocal soloist)
Composed by Joel Raney. Lent, Palm Sunday, Sacred. Octavo. 16 pages. Published by Hope Publishing Company (HP.C5631).

Item Number: HP.C5631

Text by Joel Raney. Scriptural Reference: Matthew 21:1-11, Mark 11:1-33, Luke 19:1-47, John 12:1-50.

This dynamic Palm Sunday anthem from Joel Raney is brimming over with excitement. The adult voices begin the musical journey building to "...Jesus, Redeemer, King, rides in triumphant majesty. Let all creation sing loud hosannas to the King of Glory!" At this highpoint, the optional children's choir enters singing, "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord," echoed by the adult voices in a very effective exchange. From there the anthem builds to a thrilling hosanna-filled conclusion. The instrument packet contains a Conductor's Score and parts for Flute, French Horn, Percussion (tambourine, triangle, conga or djembe), Bass Guitar & 4 Handbells.
