This charming Easter anthem incorporates melodic and textual repetition along with an age-appropriate singing range to create an optimal piece for younger elementary choirs. Young singers will enjoy the optional hand motions that bring a kinesthetic interest to the song and will assist with learning the text. Use of optional instruments provides yet another unique opportunity to engage children in the overall musical experience. As an added bonus, the anthem provides text substitutions that will make the piece equally usable during the Christmas season.
Voicing: Unison with piano, optional alto xylophone, and optional 2 octaves handbells or handchimes
Composer: Margaret R. Tucker
