This anthem was published in 1967 and is still exciting for a large chorus with plenty of power. It requires an excellent pianist or organist. There is a wonderful spoken chorus countered with an “alleluia” melody in unison. It ends with a grand “alleluia ” with a good deal of unison leading to cadential chords and full accompaniment. It makes an excellent contest or festival piece.
