Based on Beethoven's "Hymn to Joy", this Linda Lamb arrangement includes a part for percussion (shaker, maracas, or tambourine). The beginning and the final sections feature syncopation and staccato. The middle section is marked "Quiet Joy" and focuses on the LV technique in straight rhythms. Beethoven would be pleased with the final fortississimo ending, complete with rousing shakes! Measures total 70.
