This delightful anthem (by the composer best known for his “Alleluia” for mixed voices) is pleasing for both congregation and singers. The opening diatonic melody is friendly, but the two-part writing later in the selection tends to be chromatic and can be tricky for young voices. Even though some sections lie slightly high in the voice, this music is definitely worth the effort involved.
