J:10340444:C:Going to the Holy City
Going to the Holy City
- Shawnee Press
This anthem is a compelling mixture of styles, beginning with the languid strains of a stunning solo for low voice, and incorporating the traditional spiritual City Called Heaven.
The stately opening surrenders to a jazzy theme contagious in its vibe due to the intensely rhythmic text setting. The solo returns with choral backup, and the anthem closes with soulful exclamations celebrating the hope of heaven.
