Notes: It works well to sing this setting and particularly the refrain in three parts. Begin the refrain with tenor/ bass, then add the treble parts. Because the treble entrances are syncopated, the refrain feels contrapuntal. At the stanzas all of the voices move together. These can be more forceful and driving.
