Praise My Soul the King of Heaven
The John Goss tune LAUDA ANIMA is the source of this 2-3 or 3-6 octave majestic arrangement. It is an appropriate choice throughout the church year. Beginning with a fanfare introduction, the first stanza is presented in a powerful, straightforward style. Two softer, more flowing stanzas are next, featuring LV accompaniments, a treble counter-melody, the tune in the middle range, and an eighth note obbligato. A crescendo leads into the fanfare sounds of the introduction and a brilliant, shimmering conclusion. 56 measures. Key of G Major.
