Product Number: 1786

Composer: Thompson, Randall



In honor of the 75th anniversary, ECS Publishing is proud to present this newly transcribed edition of “Alleluia.” Perhaps one of the most often performed American choral works, millions of copies have sold since its composition in 1940 for the opening exercises of Tanglewood (the summer home of the Boston Symphony). Seventy-five years later, the continued popularity of this work attests to its endurance.

This exciting new transcription also includes introductory notes compiled by Carl Schmidt, such as the following: “Conceived at one of the busiest and most stressful periods in his life, and at a time of great international turmoil, Thompson found time and inspiration in only seventy-eight bars of music and two words- Alleluia, Amen- to create one of the most cherished and frequently performed pieces of a cappella vocal music ever written. Sung and recorded around the world by singers of all ages, Alleluia richly deserves its lofty place in the pantheon of choral masterpieces.”
