Description:
Untitled

An outstanding arrangement of this beloved spiritual from the pen of Brian L. Hanson. Hanson's choral writing uses unison lines in an intentional way, prompting an earnest response from the optional cello part. The delicate piano accompaniment seems to mark the passage of time as The Three Days unfold. A tonal change and dense piano chords signal the resurrection, and the climax, before the piece ends in hushed awe. A unique feature of this arrangement is the optional ending for Holy Week. This flexible anthem is a must-have for your choral library!
