Description

SATB and organ. Text by Charles Wesley.

Notes: A short, impressive anthem for All Saints or any Saints day. A stately march tempo will give the required sense of grandeur. At bar 27, the chords should sound together and dynamics should be observed to achieve contrast with the opening section. A fortissimo flourish concludes the piece. Keep the notes sustained right until the end and tell your singers not to forget to go to the coda!

The Church triumphant in thy love,
their might joys we know;
they sing the Lamb in hymns above,
and we in hymns below.

Thee in thy glorious realm they praise,
and bow before thy throne;
we in the kingdom of thy grace:
the kingdoms are but one.
