New Choral Anthem: "Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven"

I'm very happy to announce the release of "Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven" from Chorister's Guild! For SATB and piano, I composed this anthem for a consortium of 10 churches a couple years back, and I was quite pleased with how it turned out, and was thrilled when CG accepted it for publication. They give the following description:

This exciting anthem for Christ the King Sunday is a stunner from start to finish! Composer Christopher Teichler sets this familiar hymn text to a lilting new tune, which bursts with joyful praise. A driving, rhythmic accompaniment underscores the vocals, which alternate between strong unison singing and full harmonic cadences. An impressive piece for a festival day!

In addition, J.W. Pepper has listed it as an "Editor's Choice" selection, which is always exciting and humbling.
