A Gospel song, “I’m Goin’ Up Yonder” begins softly with a soloist or small ensemble and continues to crescendo in texture and dynamics with a climaxing modulation at the end. A boys and crowd-pleaser alike, this is an exercise in sustaining excitement and maintaining an even crescendo over an entire piece.
