Although published as an anthem in the Augsburg children's choir series, this setting is intended to include the assembly. The choir/soloist and bass guitar introduce the tune (WET SAINTS) of this jazz hymn. Piano and assembly join on a repeat of the first stanza, followed by the saxophone in stanza 2. Stanza 3 concludes with a tag sung by the choir/soloist. Improvisation by the pianist and saxophonist is encouraged.
Instrumental and assembly parts are available as downloads from the publisher. The alternate alto sax part is available from the composer.
