Sing praise is an upbeat opener or concert piece that is based on the Old Hundredth. It was a commission by Flevo Brass Emmeloord to praise the conductor/teacher Klaas de Jong. I know Klaas as a high-spirited teacher who always devotes his time to guiding young players and developing music ensembles by investing in youth bands and music education.
The title is a reference to the hymn tune Old Hundredth and a message to ensembles to sing praise to teachers and youth.
Sing praise can be performed as a piece for brass band, a piece for 4 part flexible youth band and a combination of both.
