Go Tell It on the Mountain
An abundance of text painting and pleasing transitions around every corner make this an inspired and surprising choice for Christmas worship and concerts alike. Starting with an ethereal opening, the tune appears first in fragments supported by singing bells and bass choir chimes until finally moving forward in a driving presentation of this Christmas spiritual. The addition of synth strings and percussion expands and enhances the overall effect. Begins in C Major, modulates to F Major, then G Major before returning to F Major to end the piece. 104 measures.
