Stunning arrangement! Note that the choral octavo contains only the choral parts—by itself it cannot provide a sense of the immense splendor of this setting. One really must peruse the full score or listen to the audio recording. What tenor section won’t enjoy the lead on verse 3? This is definitely a work for large spaces and large assemblies, underscored by the opening fanfare and coda. Caution: May cause chills and goose bumps.
French Horns parts are optional. The percussion part is for cymbal and snare drum.
