I will sing unto the Lord (The Song of Moses)

$120.00

An extended Easter anthem for SSAATBB mixed voices, brass (3 trumpets, 1 horn, 2 trombones), organ, and percussion (timpani, chimes, and bass drum). Full of wonderful contrasts, this score dramatizes the deliverance of the Israelites from the hand of Pharoah, complete with its own “water music.”

Lyrics

I will sing unto the Lord.
The Lord is a mighty warrior, the chariots of Pharoah has he hurled into the sea.
The horse and the rider has he thrown into the sea.
Who can be compared with you, O Lord?
Who is like you, awesome in your holiness?
With your constant love you have redeemed your people.
You will bring them to your dwelling, O Lord, that holy place, O Lord,
Your sanctuary that your right hand has prepared.
The Lord has risen up in triumph, the Lord is my strength and my refuge.
The Lord has become my Savior, Alleluia.
I will sing unto the Lord, alleluia.
Exodus 15:1-4, 11, 13, 17

First performance was dedicated to the memory of Randall J. McCarty, Organist and Choirmaster of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Seattle. The soloists were Marie Tavianini (soprano) and Ken Peterson (tenor). Published in 1995.
