Strife Is O'er
This joyous and approachable arrangement of the well-known hymn is perfect for the smaller choir looking for a triumphant piece to play on Easter or throughout Eastertide. A driving malleted figure propels the piece forward while the melody soars above. Occasional sections in minor are interspersed, providing musical depth and harmonic interest. A final, stately iteration of the theme gives way to the initial driving rhythm once more before concluding in grand fashion. 102 measures. Keys of G Major and e minor.
