Carpenters of God by Vijay Singh. For SATB choir (a cappella). Jo-Michael Scheibe Choral Series. Concert, General. Octavo. Published by Santa Barbara Music Publishing (SB.SBMP-954).
In the style of an early American song, the pentatonic melody gives great strength to this upbeat piece. Unison men's voices open and are then followed by women's as the texture builds throughout. Carpenter's tools forge the text's metaphor of working for God to build a "spirit strong.".
