Composed two years ago, in the middle of covid, “13” is now available for purchase through J.W. Pepper.
Based on Psalm 13, this text seemed to perfectly capture the feelings of anxiety, loneliness, and hopelessness that we were collectively experiencing. The psalm does end expressing hope, almost defiantly. I sought to weave all of these complicated feelings into a cohesive musical whole.
The piano and flute parts are more demanding than the choral parts, so it is accessible to a wide range of choirs. You can learn more and preview the piece here on my website.
