Unbridled praise breaks forth in this festive contemporary choral based on the Psalms. Syncopations and mixed meter animate the primary theme with an enthusiastic spirit admonishing the faithful to “Sing to the Lord a new song!” A lovely contrasting middle section provides musical and lyrical variety before launching into an exciting recapitulation. The final drive to the end is a perfect punctuation mark to this call to joyful praise. Duration: ca. 2:57.
