You’ll recognize this chart from MN 2005 All State, directed by Edith Copley. Jasperse sets vocal syllables in a 6/8 meter to create a “processional” nuance. Voiced for SATB, the lower three voices are occasionally divisi. The soprano and tenor lines stretch above the staff in areas, but for the most part, the range of the song is that which most choirs can handle. A bit of a challenge for most, but a tune your students will gladly work hard to learn.
