Hosanna! by William Faulkes, from "4 Pieces for Organ" published 1917.
There are two musical themes in this piece. At the beginning, you can hear big chords stating "Ho-saaaa-na!" Then a 'second subject' comes in quietly, and gradually builds in excitement until in the final few bars it is once again exuberantly shouting "Hosanna! Hosanna! Hosanna!", and then at the very end everything it's got goes into a finishing "Amen". Recorded 4 April 2020, in the garage.

Virtual cuppa after the service

Thanks to organist Walter Nicholls for the accompanying music: prelude, two hymn tunes and postlude.
