Antiphonal hosannas open this stately Palm Sunday anthem by Jay Althouse. With growing intensity, the choir sings, "Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord," leading to the entrance of unison voices (optional children's choir) singing a refrain from the traditional hymn Hosanna, Loud Hosanna. The anthem concludes with a majestic verse of the hymn, with optional children's choir and congregation. Parts for 2 trumpets are also included. The perfect choice for Palm Sunday!
