By Taylor Davis

SATB choir, piano
Composed by Taylor Davis. Mixed Voices Series. Sacred Anthem, Christmas. Octavo. Published by Chorister's Guild (CG.CGA1107).

Item Number: CG.CGA1107

Rhythmic fervor abounds in this awesome Christmas anthem that brings together original music, new music and the familiar spiritual text "Rise Up Shepherd and Follow." From the anthem's beginning, a constant driving rhythm in both the men's vocal part and piano propels the song through a variety of meter changes and cool, contemporary harmonies. A final wave of musical energy brings the piece to a climatic close urging everyone to "rise up and follow the star to Bethlehem. ".

    With bouncing fun! This rhythmic varient of RISE UP will bring the children UP to to task of getting the 7/8 ostinato sharp, crisp and percussive. The soaring meolody on top is great for middle school aged voices (a bit too low for younger voices)but the modulation before...

    the last verse helps in vocal placement as well as to keep the excitment building. If you want something "fresh" for that "spot" in a program, this could be it. Rise up!
