A great way to introduce the classical style to smaller ensembles! Hal Hopson has married two wonderful melodies to form an original anthem. Borrowing from the chorus of “The Heavens Are Telling” from Haydn's Creation and the nineteenth-century hymn tune “Sagina,” Hopson has penned a spirited song of praise for the Creator, proclaimed by creation itself.

A must for every choral library for timeswhen an anthem of praise and thanksgiving is needed, any time of the ye ar.
