Ernest Sands has been described as a “bucolic, witty, and charismatic priest and composer,” and this song certainly reflects those feelings. It was written in 1981 and chosen for the 1991 installation of the Archbishop of Canterbury, and became a hit in the UK and United States. The first thing one notices is its similarity to Brubeck’s “Take Five” – in that it is written in 5/4 meter. The melody is engaging and Kyle has used articulations to emphasize and vary the feel. Mallets, plucks, TD, handchimes, and mallet-clicks add to the joy of this piece. This is a fabulous arrangement and is sure to become a favorite ‘go-to’ piece for your group!  It is suggested you look up the lyrics online to further appreciate the totality of this work.
