After a brief covid delay, Chorister's Guild will be releasing my anthem Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven sometime in April 2021!
For SATB and piano, I gave this familiar hymn text a joyous, rhythmic setting in a 10/8 meter. It is very lively, and would work well as a Call to Worship.
I'll be sure to make a more formal announcement once the piece is released, so stay tuned!
Special thanks to Katie Houts at CG, who made this possible and gave me some great edit suggestions, and to Russell Almand who convinced me to submit the piece to CG in the first place. Grateful for both of you in this process! And once again, thank you to the consortium members that helped make the creation of this piece possible:
