A setting of the festive carol in a 7/8 meter.
Composed for Dr. Allen Lott and Andrew Lott, with gratitude and admiration.
Based on the Advent/Christmas tune "Picardy," for trumpet and piano.The trumpet represents the regal character for the "King of kings," while the overall tone of this setting communicates the complexity and depth of the text.
Open sonorities and dark colors give the familiar ST. ANNE hymn tune ("O God Our Help in Ages Past") a rich and evocative new flavor. Trumpet requires harmon mute.
