Works by Tim Knight
This festive anthem sets the familiar autumn hymn text to new music. Written for two-part mixed choir (with optional treble divisi) and organ/piano, this piece is approachable for every choir.
This spirited work is suitable for services of celebration; it works well on both small and large instruments.
