Come All Faithful Raise the Strain
This Easter hymn arrangement opens with a big dramatic introduction and ends in the same fashion. The hymn statement is done in straight-forward chordal fashion, ending with a rousing crescendo. A second hymn statement is more subdued and can feature handchimes. The flashy finish is a short reprise at a ff to fff level. 58 measures in length, it is set in C Major and F Major.
