Credo by Mark Hayes. For SATB choir, piano (with optional orchestration). Concert. Octavo. Published by Heritage Music Press (LO.15-2239H).
Originally written for the International Children's Choir Festival in Canterbury, England, this piece is perfect for all ages. The text speaks of imagination, creativity and possibility. It encourages the singer to live life to the fullest with declarative statements such as I am hope, I am love, I am a servant, I am peace. Its lightly rhythmic melody flows and soars, and the piece ends quietly with the reflective affirmation, I am peace.
