From Composer Carlos Zapién comes this solemn entrance processional based on Psalm 145, Zapién, a learned cathedral music director, crafted this stately tune for large, festive gatherings, though it would complement any church's repertoire with its memorable refrain and accessible choral writing.

Lyrics are offered completely in English and Spanish, lending plenty of linguistic versatility, and the additional fanfare-like brass and timpani parts will further enliven special occasions.
