Howard Helvey has supplied a lot of great literature to the male choir world in the last several years, especially wprks for choir and four-hand piano. A a general rule, all of his scores are worth examining! This spiritual arrangement is for a cappella choir and will serve as an exciting closer for your program. It is mostly homophonic, though some nice duet textures appear throughout the piece. You can work on intonation and balance a good amount with your men in this score, but the attention paid to dynamic pacing and contrast is what puts this piece over the top for your audience. If you are looking for a fresh and fun addition to your repertoire, this may be the right piece for you!
