Springing from the top of the pop charts and into the choir folders of
churches, community choirs, and school choirs alike, comes one of the
great inspirational numbers of our time. A very usable vocal treatment
makes this open to choirs of any size, and the poetic imagery of the
text allows this piece to speak to many occasions both sacred and
concert. Consider the lavish orchestration or StudioTrax option for a
soaring effect. Available separately: SATB, StudioTrax CD
(Accompaniment, Split-Trax, Performance), and Orchestration (Score &
parts for Flute 1&2, Oboe, Clarinet, Horn 1&2, Trumpets 1-3,
Trombones 1-3, Tuba, Glockenspiel, Percussion, Timpani, Harp, Rhythm,
Violin 1&2, Viola, Cello, Double Bass). Duration: ca. 4:01.

Student choirs will enjoy singing this adaptation of the highly popular tune and text. Joe Martin has done an admirable job of setting it chorally and with orchestra. It is suggested that this anthem be used as a color piece for concert setting or mission project setting and that church student choirs would keep a wide range of scripturally-based anthems on the front burner, as well.

Scripture reference to this anthem is Isaiah 40:31; Psalm 118:14

Enjoy!

The Bottom Line

Pros
Well-loved and pleasant to sing
Cons
Take care to watch lower ranges in young voices. Unlikely to pack the punch of the original recording of Josh Groban
