This is a “contemporary” rendition of the hymn tune “Rejoice, the Lord Is King.” The rhythm of this traditional hymn tune is adapted and woven in with a counter melody and beautiful text of invitation. The arrangement is very accessible and sets a festive spirit to begin any liturgy. A “contemporary ensemble or combo” is easily and appropriately incorporated into the performance of this piece.
With optional brass and rhythm section
