This setting of sacred text suitable for Advent or Palm Sunday dances throughout in compound duple and triple meter. The boys enjoyed this piece especially because of its energy and movement. With a modulation about two-thirds into the song, I used this to teach about harmonic structure helping the choristers hear how the V7 chord leads us to the I chord. It is also an easy piece to practice sight-singing.
