This is a work for advanced choirs, combining two American Shape-note hymns (solfege syllables dart around) for a rollicking work. Emerging from a lush opening that features two tenor soloists, the combination of mixed meter, contemporary harmonies, and the joyful character throughout make this well worth the work – a challenge that your choir will enjoy throughout the whole process!
