This regal hymn concertato opens with a majestic antiphonal fanfare between choir and accompaniment. Driving accompaniment figures propel the first verse along and invite the congregation to join. After a middle verse with rich choral writing, the anthem modulates to a final verse for choir and congregation that is crowned by a descant. Larger choirs will enjoy the brass sextet orchestration (available separately) while smaller choirs will enjoy the solo trumpet obbligato (optional, part included). An anthem of distinction for Ascension, Christ the King, Pentecost, Thanksgiving, Trinity or any time!
