Jean Anne Shafferman and Patti Drennan have once again partnered in creating a lively, rhythmic hymn arrangement that breathes new life into traditional hymnody! This resurrection anthem opens with energetic syncopation and the choir proclaiming, "Rejoice, He is alive!" Sequencing harmonies increase the excitement to fever pitch. Then the congregation (opt.) joins with the choir to conclude with a triumphant verse of Rejoice, Ye Pure in Heart. Highly recommended for Easter, Eastertide and Ascension. Great for choirs of all sizes, with opt. trumpet obbligato included. Parts for brass and timpani, and a full performance/accompaniment CD are available separately.
