  • Program Note:

    Winner of the Cantate Chamber Singers 2006 Young Composer’s Competition, this setting of Psalm 98 highlights both the rhythmic and lyrical qualities of the text through exciting use of the vocal registers and the piano writing. The simple but effective ABAB form makes this an excellent piece for opening or closing a program.
