Let Us Sing!

Instrumentation/Voicing: 
SSA Choir, Viola, Bells

A joyful and high-energy piece, this work is based on a tune from the American shape note tradition from The Southern Harmony, 1835, and a text from 1742. Rhythmically active, the altos and viola accompany the melody in the soprano; this evolves to canonic treatment in the second verse, and a change of key and counterpoint in the third verse. Fun, loved by all, and a great opener or closer!
