I\'d not begin the piece with a \"fade-in\", as the crescendo will also arise after the men\'s a capella. I\'d give it a try to have that \"rhythm\" driven by some slight glock over the men\'s voice, perhaps combined with harp? I\'m not an expert in this, but I think that might be better than a \'dark\' snare as you want to crate a more \'happy\' sound.
