TTBB choir and piano accompaniment - Late Intermediate
II Samuel XXIII 3,4. Composed by Randall Thompson (1899-1984). Choral, Sacred and 20th Century. Octavo. 10 pages. Published by E.C. Schirmer Publishing (EC.2154).

Item Number: EC.2154

ISBN 6.00313E+11. 9x12 inches. Key: G major. 2 Samuel 23:3-4.

Commissioned and premiered in 1949 by the Boston Symphony Orchestra to honor Dr. Serge Koussevitsky for 25 years of directorship. Roaring ascending scales in the accompaniment reflect the great strength of this Old Testament text. The popularity of this anthem is surpassed only by Thompson's Alleluia.
