    Nice song great change of pace. 12/8 time is a challenge for the non- readers but it is going to be a piece that is repeated often. It gives the Director freedom to work on dynamics with in the canned music. The blues/southern gosphel feel is what makes...

    this a Sunday morning special to wake up the troops.

    Real, soprano, really sings the beginning of this piece the way it should be. (We have changed it from unison to solo.) The men come in enthusiastically and sing as if they like it. Because it is a little more difficult than anthems we usually sing, we have moved it...
