Inspired by the Joseph Jennings arrangement of this same tune for Chanticleer, Shawn combines the five syllable halleluia with this timeless melody of the old spiritual. A true gospel piano part, for years improvised by the arranger and now written down along with an optional coda for any choir blessed with a great gospel soloist, this is a concert closer of the highest order.
