A celebratory anthem for choir, 3 trumpets and organ. The opening trumpet fanfare makes this an excellent choice for festival days or concert openers.
For you shall go out with joy is a setting of the Biblical text, Isaiah 55:12. The work was commissioned by University Unitarian Church for the retirement of the Reverend Dr. Peter S. Raible. It won an Honorable Mention in the 2006 Vincent Brown Silliman Choral Anthem competition.
Notes on preparation and performance
A version with brass quintet is also available on request.
For you shall go out with joy and be led forth with peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall burst into song, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
