JANNA is a strong tune built with some repeated phrases and sequences; a unique rhythmic pattern carries this song along resolutely from beginning to end. Sing JANNA in unison with lots of energy on a half-note pulse. This tune also makes a fine solo anthem. Sing stanzas 1 and 2 in antiphonal groups and stanzas 3 and 4 all together.
Hoekema is currently an academic dean at his alma mater, Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Michigan.
