Malcolm Archer The Desert Shall Rejoice

Keyboard [organ/piano], Oboe
Original Publication
So, You Have a Cathedral Choir!
Moderately Difficult
Suggested Uses(s)

From our archives. And one of our all-time favorites. SATB (divisi) with organ and oboe. Text from Isaiah 35:1-10. Not difficult, absolutely gorgeous (and according to some, "life-changing"). The lesson is coming back around this Advent. Do NOT miss your chance to program this!

The desert shall rejoice, and blossom as a rose: it shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice with praise and singing. For the ears of the deaf shall hear, and the eyes of the blind shall be opened. For the tongue of the dumb shall sing, and the lame will dance for joy. For the ground will become a pool, and the dry land will become springs of water. As the ransomed return to the Lord, they shall come back singing unto Zion with joy.
