This four-verse original "hymn anthem" for All Saints Day or feast days of individual saints calls to mind those written for large-scale communal singing by composers such as C S Lang, with its strong, memorable melody, energising organ part and adaptable construction. It can be sung in unison (with optional alternative notes for lower voices), in three parts (SAB) or in four parts (SATB). It would therefore make a useful, flexible and popular addition to any church or school choir's library.
