The beloved Shaker hymn begins with a light, lilting opening then builds to a soaring full band presentation of the theme. The melody is then heard in a minor key through the second section, as the music displays the passion of hard work and dedication. The finale begins aggressively, but turns to a more hopeful sound as the band presents the theme in a full, bold fashion for a goose-bump inducing conclusion!
