Description:

This Irish hymn, moville, is set for brass, organ, choir, and assembly. The tune is fresh, readily singable, and delightfully scored, including a 16-measure third stanza that will require the choir to work a bit. All in all, a fabulous piece for Christ the King or any festive occasion.

John Ferguson has skillfully set a traditional, sturdy Irish melody for SATB voices and brass with optional assembly. The inner verse is for choir without assembly and is punctuated by short phrases in the brass. Good for Eastertide or general use.
