Enter God's Courts with Praise
Composer Philip Young marks his tempo as "Joyfully" with no metronome marking, so that you can tailor this to your choir's speed. However, it should take a lively pace, since the melody is up-beat and propelled along by eighth-note movement. Just when the listener is convinced this is all an original composition, phrases of the doxology sneak in, sandwiched between passages of the original melody. The piece stays true to the key of F major, except for occasional accidentals to freshen up the harmony. Measures total 87.
