God is in Our Midst
"Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth! God is in our midst." So begins the text of this anthem with original lyrics and music by Mark Hayes. Full of energy and variety (one section includes handclaps with a spoken chant) the score also calls for the upper register of 4-octaves of bells. Other instruments are scored to achieve a BIG sound and an exciting atmosphere. Orchestra parts include: 2 Flutes, 3 Clarinets, Oboe, Bassoon, Alto Sax, tenor Sax, 3 French Horns, 2 Trumpets, 2 Trombones, Baritone, Tuba, Handbells, Timpani, Mark Tree, Triangle, Gong, Congas, Claves, Cymbal, 2 Violins, Viola, Celli, and Double Bass.
