This piece begins with simple presentation of the melody in a minor key and quickly becomes layered with other voice parts. As verses continue, texture and dynamics change, and the piece ends in a very broad and dense statement of victory and triumph. This is not a difficult piece,but has a very impressive effect. It requires robust singing and also lively and intense diction at pianissimo.
