Christ Is Made the Sure Foundation
Stirring and energetic throughout, this hymn setting from Joel Raney builds, modulates and builds again to a broad, stately finale. The piece combines original material from Raney with the well-known text paired with the tune, LAUDA ANIMA. It is set for SATB choir and piano with optional organ, handbells and optional 3-5 octave handchimes, trumpet and percussion. The separate instrumental packet contains the full conductor's score and a reproducible 5-page handbell part as well as all the other optional parts. Arranged in the keys of D Major, C Major, and Ab Major, measures total 151.
