Faber Edition: Choral Signature Series
Organ, brass and percussion
This wonderful sacred work is a jubilant setting of George Herbert's well-known words and would make an ideal choice for celebratory services and concerts. It may be performed with organ alone, or with organ, brass (2 alt sax, 2 ten sax, bari sax, 4 tpt, 4 tbn) and percussion (timp, cym).
The Faber Choral Signature Series introduces a wealth of new or recently written choral music to choirs in search of fresh repertoire. The series draws in a rich diversity of contemporary composers and includes both lighter and more challenging contemporary works, offering a thrilling array of varied styles.
