This anthem dances off the page as the meter as the composer moves the meter from 4/4 to 3/4. It feels in a quick three, actually better conducted in "1," and the accompaniment, whether 4-hand piano or full orchestra, is bright, colorful, and playful. The entire anthem is unison, with he exception of an ten-measure section which contains 8-part harmony. Easily adaptable if 8-parts are not possible in your choir.

Highly recommended for students as well as adult singers. Fun, worshipful, and engaging.

Excellent setting that feels as if you are gazing upon God's creation. It is worth doing with piano, four hands, but it is best to do with orchestra. The unison stanzas of course will be learned easily and it will be worth it to spend the time on the harmony.
