Amen, We Praise Your Name, O God is the translation of this Swahili title, and it will be a joyous, uplifting, yet accessible addition to Cathy's other African pieces. Jubilant beginning and ending sections are separated by a slow, smooth section including handchimes. Malletting is used extensively, with only a few martellatos. Accompanying percussion instruments are djembe or congas, caxixi or maracas, and shekere or other large shaker. Compatible editions for 2-3 and 3-6 are available, making this a perfect choice for festivals.
