This widely acclaimed psalm setting opens with unison vocals alternating with lively independent part-writing, punctuated with clapping, Make a joyful noise and clap your hands! The B section is for speech choir, Make a joyful noise! Sing! Shout!, that gradually adds one section after another, climaxing in a triumphant SHOUT! A Sacred Super Seven Anthem of Distinction, it is great for church and school choirs, treble and mixed voices.
