Fear Not, Rejoice and Be Glad

In 1971, Priscilla Wright wrote a song based on the prophesies of Joel. It was a scripture song like many of its era, with verses that quote a biblical passage verbatim and a music style that mimics Jewish folk song. We ended up singing it on a Joyful Noise Sunday, so I wrote a quick little arrangement for strings, brass, woodwinds, and percussion. Email me if you need a score.

    Thank you for this posting with the audio clip. I could find precious little about Priscilla Wright and the story behind her composing this song.
