SATB choir
Arranged by Craig Courtney. Sacred. Octavo. Published by Beckenhorst Press (BP.1630).

Item Number: BP.1630

The hymn tune MELITA lends dignity and power to Edward Mote's classic words in this formal setting. A solo trumpet opens the anthem, foreshadowing the final verse of the hymn "when He shall come with trumpet sound". A free, a cappella rendition of the first verse is sung by the choir and the following verses include congregation. The pinnacle moment occurs in the final verse when brass, percussion, organ and soaring descant undergird the text filled with heavenly images. Brass quartet and percussion parts (BP.1630A) are available for purchase.
