Wake Every Breath and String! / Let Heaven with Gladness Ring!
Item #: G-5965
1) Billings, William; Bringle, Mary Louise; 2) Bringle, Mary Louise
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.
Christmastide, Eastertide, Ordinary Time
