I Will Rise is a standard within the contemporary praise charts. This arrangement takes a familiar chart and makes it applicable to SATB voices. The voicing is fairly simple, lots of SATB unison combined with simple 4-part harmony and many repeated choruses, but don’t let that make you change your mind on this simple anthem. When I perform this song I incorporate numerous soloists and slowly incorporate the full SATB choir as the anthem builds in intensity and volume. Combined with bass guitar and drums, this upbeat “Praise Song” is sure to enhance any worship service.
