Description:

This early American “fuguing tune” allows singers to let loose with rustic and boisterous joy.
If your choir has never sung indigenous shapenote style, this arrangement would make a fun and satisfying introduction.
Poet Mary Louise Bringle provides two new hymn texts for this lively music. It’s easy to catch on to the style. Don’t be afraid; try it! “Wake Every Breath” is suitable for a Sunday of Ordinary Time, Eastertide, or celebrations of music in worship.
An alternative text, “Let Heavens with Gladness Ring,” is specific to Christmas.

Optional keyboard part can double voices.
