This joyful hymn is intended to bring happiness at any time of year. The engaging melody is enhanced by an exciting all-malleted accompaniment. It is not only a great teaching piece for youth or adults for a variety of malleting techniques, but an exciting festival piece as well. With the alternate title "As with Gladness, Men of Old," it is also appropriate for Epiphany.
