This old setting of portions of Psalm 96 comes off as lively and fresh as any 20th century piece! It learns quickly and gives sluggish altos a chance to “open the top” a bit (but only to D). Excellent for teenage sopranos and altos, too–although the baritone part may be a bit low for some teenage boys. (Lowest notes can be moved up an octave in places.)
