Ode to Joy
This bold setting of Beethoven's well-known tune is ideal for any time of great celebration and rejoicing, including Easter Sunday. Bold chords and exciting syncopations abound, accompanied by varied harmonies, which cast the familiar tune in a new light. A gentler middle verse with the melody on chimes gives way to a final triumphant verse. Add in the optional brass quintet to give an even greater sense of joy!
