This arrangement of Sacred Harp is unison during the verses and SATB for the refrain. The vocal range and lilt of the tune seems to allow the average church choir to accomplish this piece a cappella. The text is one of promise and resurrection and therefore is suited for many Sundays of the Easter season and throughout the Liturgical Year. The trumpet theme enters during the last verse and plays to the end, and optional four-part brass is written for the closing section.

With keyboard and optional trumpet or brass (congregation optional) Easy

(Trumpet – Medium)
