Description: Followers of the Lamb is an appealing anthem, ideal for a baptismal service, appropriate for the seasons after Epipany or for Pentecost/Trinity, or for a Spring concert. The text is straightforward and easily memorized by choristers. One of six Shaker source anthems offered in the Viva Voce 2011-2012 curriculum, this anthem provides an opportunity to work on tuning intervals between the two parts.

Sing on and dance on, followers of the Lamb.
O sisters aren't you happy, ye followers of the Lamb?
Be joyful in the Lord, O ye followers of the Lamb.
