Review
" 'An Endless Alleluia'...will work for just about any combination of voices available, although I would have a strong preference for the resultant four-part texture of ST/AB. With great economy of fine material, Jack spins out this much loved text with verve, éclat, and élan! Bravo!" --AAM Journal, February 2002

Description
Scored for two equal voices and organ (or piano), this vigorous anthem employs syncopations, shifting meters, and canonic writing in the voice parts to portray a joyous vision of the heavenly realm. Especially appropriate for Easter, the feast of Christ the King, and All Saints' Day.

Text
Sing Alleluia forth in duteous praise,
ye citizens of heav'n, O sweetly raise
an endless Alleluia.

Ye who have fought and joined the starry throng,
Ye victors, now take up the eternal song,
an endless Alleluia.

Almighty Christ, to thee our voices sing
glory for evermore; to thee we bring
an endless Alleluia.

--Latin, 5th-8th century, ver Hymnal 1940
