Beethoven’s HYMN TO JOY receives a congregational hymn setting by Fedak that will prove useful for festal occasions. The music begins with an extended organ toccata as an ebullient introduction. This is followed by a straightforward but engaging organ and congregational setting that will require almost no preparation time, thus allowing for spending rehearsal time on choral anthems.
