Lift High the Cross
SATB Chorus with Orchestral or Piano Accompaniment

This arrangement represents the 3rd movement of a much-larger work Canticles of Praise [RBM-116], and has here been separated as a stand-alone anthem. The hymn tune, CRUCIFER, is utilized throughout; vocal writing is interspersed with fanfare passages for the orchestra and contains the text from verses 1, 2, 4 and 7 with multiple iterations of the refrain. An optional narration exists for use with the larger work, Canticles of Praise.

( dur: 4:00 ” )

Full orchestral accompaniment materials (2222 / 2221, timp, 2 perc, hp, stgs) are available on a rental-only basis from: ECS Publishing. Orchestral performance does not require the use of organ.
