Lobe Den Herren: Introduction, Bridge and Last Verse

The introduction for LOBE DEN HERREN (”Praise to the Lord, the Almighty”) opens with a reed duet, that soon gives way to an exciting build-up, engaging the singers for the first verse. The bridge takes off while the singers hold the last note, immediately taking us up a step into the key of G, and ends with a thrilling dominant suspension. The last verse begins on a powerful unison, that moves to the relative minor for the second line, concluding with some powerful harmonic surprises.
