Ed Huckeby's stirring new arrangement of a beloved classic is a terrific addition to any concert program with an important message. Starts out with a paraphrase of the main theme in 4/4 before presenting the entire melody in its original 3/4. The arrangement build to a strong dynamic ending that is sure to impress. An excellent concert opener or closer that is timeless in its appeal! Don't miss this one!
