Energetic, fast-paced Appalachian tune which is framed in 4-handed piano accompaniment. This anthem is completely appropriate for church and school choirs alike. Driving energy from beginning to end.

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 the composer conducting.
