Combining the regal melody of Johannes Brahms with inspired lyrics from Bryan Jeffrey Leach, Fred Bock created a meaningful hymn for the church. Bruce Greer's arrangement of this proud hymn adds a stunning dimension to the whole. Thrilling yet accessible for any size choir, it is a thrilling anthem appropriate for any festive worship occasion. Congregation and descant are optional. Parts for optional brass sextet (3 trumpets/3 trombones) and tympani are available separately.
