A New Extended Ending for Battle Hymn of the Republic

Our Ward Choir will be singing Battle Hymn of the Republic the last week in June just before the July 4th holiday. I decided to extend the ending and have the congregation join in on the last chorus. I think they will enjoy it.

What? Yes I am choosing music for June and July before we sing for Easter. We have been practicing Easter music since January. And we will begin Christmas music in September. I find it is more fun to sing when we are well prepared and confident with the music.

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord!
