As in all true classics, this anthem never grows tired or lacks for teaching opportunities. It is so incredibly crafted that those singing it are actually providing themselves a vocalise that, in itself, trains the voice to sing properly.

As in all choral music, your success with the singers will depend upon your simultaneous success with the accompanist. Our choirs will go no further musically than the pianist can accompany them. Make sure that the pianist is properly prepared and forewarned before springing this anthem.

Likely, the best teaching of this classic to students is to begin the first several weeks rehearsal within sectionals so the students will have a clear and isolated view of their own parts before trying to add the other three.

Once conquered, be prepared for your students to "crown the conquest" as their greatest accomplishment and also the favorite anthem in their folder. It has happened time and time again with this masterpiece.

The Bottom Line

Pros
In order to actually sing the correct pitches at the right time, you must sing correctly
Cons
Too advanced for most beginning student choirs

Your youth or adult choir will love singing this. It is a challenge for a church choir, but very doable. It will be one of those pieces that will be extremely rewarding.
