Lena McLin, African- American composer, has created a fanfarelike “attention-getter” that sounds best with a large chorus. Contrasting dynamics, syncopated rhythms and abundant melodic leaps infuse drama and energy into this thrilling work. The organ and B-flat trumpet accompaniment add to the majesty of this song. Well suited for high school/ church choirs.
