William Bradley Roberts
• Renaissance effect of tambourine and drum ostinato, hearkening
back to the early church
• celebratory introit for Palm Sunday, easily learned and can be sung by adults and children combined!
• simple rhythmic and melodic motive introduced by the basses, and imitated by one voice entering at a time
• duetting and trios, with a simple bass line beneath, building to the final, climactic Hosanna!
The composer recommends the tempo of dotted half = 56
