Composer: William Billings (1746 - 1800)
Forces: S.A.T.B. + reduction
Lyrics: Psalm 148 (adapted)
An anthem for Thanksgiving from Billings' Continental Harmony, 1794. The reduction should be reserved for rehearsal. I have attempted to preserve the differences in relative speed shewn in the original. Billings' own absolute tempi are well documented (a pulse of c.80 per minute would apply to this piece) but have been increased, more readily to accord with the modern audience's attention span.
