With the familiar Christ the King texts from Psalm 71:8 and Daniel 7:14, this masterpiece is a powerhouse.
How do you use full organ when accompanying a choir?
Score the two in dialog. After the intro, the choir sings a ff statement, “He shall rule from sea to sea,” answered with a 2-measure organ fanfare. This pattern continues until a quietly chanted verse leads to a marcato double “Alleluia” and a final fff open chord (no third) on the organ.
Look this one over and you’ll quickly understand why it’s one of GIA’s all-time best sellers.
