This fine transcription by Travis Cross of this highly regarded a cappella choral work gives us rich harmonies and a dignified, reverent presentation ever expanding from the alto saxophone solo in the opening through the truly stirring tutti sections.
- Program Note by David Holsinger
In composing Alleluia, Ralph Manuel created a masterwork for the a capella choir. Through its melodic simplicity and warm harmonic textures, it beautifully expresses the sentiments of “Alleluia,” its only word of text. The numerous timbral possibilities of the symphonic wind ensemble provides an exciting palette of sound for this arrangement.
