A dramatic transcription of a 4 part choral hymn by Beethoven. The song's lyrics are by Gellert and are a majestic description of nature's declarations of the glory of God. Originally for solo voice and piano, this work has been traditional sung by men's chorus. Dr. Hanson's transcription is true to the score and has a wonderful timbre to it. The music is dramatic, bold yet noble in quality. A great 3 minute work for a concert. In Tenor and Bass Clefs for moderately advanced players. Range goes to a high C on 1st and a low B below the staff in part 4.
