From the opening sweep of notes, this amazing arrangement lifts the spirit of praise to new heights. This has become the quintessential version of this beloved hymn and now we are pleased to offer it with a full orchestration and track. The thoughtful piano writing makes this usable with or without supplementary instrumental resources. Reacquaint yourself with a classic!

This Mark Hayes innovation is joyous, happy, and full of pleasant surprises. Festive from the first phrase, "All Creatures of Our God and King" is best suited for fully mature, adult voices.

Selected for the 2014 Labor Day at the Cathedral (for adult singers), this anthem will be sung by 200 adults in the National Cathedral with full orchestra with the composer conducting.

Alleluia!

This is a great arrangement, best suited for adult choirs. It is not an easy piece, but it is well worth the time. Lots of opportunities for meaningful musical moments. The piano part is difficult if you do it at the intended tempo. Most of the piece are homophonic, but there is a polyphonic middle section.

The Bottom Line

Pros
Great vocal writing, energetic
