Hold on to your hats! This isn't your usual "Cantate Domino." Described by other composers as "downright rowdy" and "chaotic" this piece is fully of energy and passion. Accessible to a mid to high-level high school ensemble as well as professional ensembles, this piece makes an exciting opener or closer to any program, sure to excite your audience by defying expectations of what a "Cantate Domino" should be. 

Opening with an exciting rallying call, this song quickly dives into a driving rhythm with a syncopated melody before builds to an exciting finish. This is sure to excite your choir and your audience!
