Originally published in 1977, this top-selling anthem is now being issued in Choristers Guild's Select Voices Series. Adapted from Schubert's Mass in G, the short Latin text (taken from the account of Jesus' entry into Jerusalem [Matthew 21:9]) serves as a good introduction to singing in a foreign language, emphasizing pure vowel sounds for unified vocal production. Use of the Latin text also makes the anthem an ideal choice for use in Palm Sunday services. Lowe's alternate, general text in English provides the opportunity to use this graceful, Romantic masterpiece at any time of year.
