Search: Alleluia by Randall Thompson

When I was in high school I was in band & choir. In all-region choir we sang Randall Thompson's Alleluia, a favorite of mine. When I was in my early years of band directing an all-region band played the same Alleluia arranged by Fred Allen. I wanted to get it for my band and was told that the arrangement was not available since the copyright holders would not approve it for publication. A number of years later I heard a wind ensemble arrangement by Tom Watts performed by a US Air Force band. It was beautiful but not as good as Fred Allen's arrangement. Has anyone heard arrangements other than the aforementioned ones?
