This well-known Ken Medema song from the 1970's is given a tour-de-force a cappella treatment by Kenneth Dake. Requiring divisi into eight parts, gospel harmonies abound. The choir sings doo-wop syllables under a soloist (high voice) for twelve measures in the middle of the piece. To our way of thinking, this does not rule it out for worship because of the careful writing and wonderful effect it achieves. For a choir that can handle the divisi and lack of accompaniment, this is absolutely not to be missed! .
