All You Who with Bright Hope – Full Score
The text, written by David Manuel, sings the praises of all who have gone before us in the Christian life as well as describing the transfiguration scene and our call to embrace our own transfiguration in Christ. Brass and timpani provide a stirring introduction to the hymn-anthem and their support is deeply felt throughout the entire work. The fourth verse is for four-part choir alone, while the final verse is introduced with brass fanfares. Those who know Dr. Saylor’s hymn-anthems will see his exciting, vibrant style in full bloom here.
