Fill your sanctuary with Palm Sunday majesty and excitement with this anthem from Joe Martin. The first of three verses is a lively call-and-response setting of the scripture: "Who is this King of glory?" The contrasting middle verse is an inventive pairing of the traditional hymn tune LEONI with the text "All Glory, Laud and Honor." The final verse returns the lively theme of the first in counterpoint with drum-like hosannas. An energetic accompaniment that ties all three verses together, whether provided by piano alone or orchestra, makes this anthem the perfect choice for Palm Sunday. (From the cantata "Who Is This King?" SATB - 55/1096L; SAB - 55/1097L.).
