A recognized authority on the history and practical application of orchestration through all musical periods, Gordon Jacob's free flowing pen amassed an impressive and eclectic catalog of works. Fantasia on the Alleluia Hymn is a resplendent setting of the 17th century hymn tune "Lasst Uns Erfreuen," commonly paired with the hymn "All Creatures of Our God and King." The full spectrum of musical emotion is displayed in this stellar work, which leads the listener from quiet introspection to unbridled joy as it unfolds.
