Choral Anthem "My Savior" Avaiable from Lorenz

I am pleased to share that my choral anthem "My Savior" is now available through Lorenz publishing.

I found the text very moving; it is an old text and can be found in some hymnals, but I felt compelled to put some original music to it. I wanted to create a beautiful setting that could be performed by choirs of various sizes and abilities.

The melodic material is folk-like, and the piano accompaniment features open sonorities and, primarily, diatonic harmonies. While the meter is mostly in 5/4, not a common meter for most church choirs, it has a very natural flow.

Lorenz has made a lovely recording of this anthem, located at the link below. Please feel free to share with any choirs or music ministers. Thank you!
