David W. Music has written this versatile anthem for an advent or Palm Sunday procession. It provides an opportunity to combine multi-age choirs in a church setting —a good combination from which all seem to benefit. With adaptations, the anthem can be sung by unison or two part choirs or with SATB adult groups alone. The combination of adult voices with the lightness of children’s voices and the simple percussion instruments seems just right.
