Make A Joyful Noise (Choral). Composed by Stephen Hodge. For Choir (SATB). Sacred. Published by Voice of the Rockies (VR.VOR67C09).
With a text adapted from Psalm 100, this is a majestic, strong anthem. Meter changes (3/4 to 4/4 to ! to 2/4, etc. ) happen freq uently, as well as some modal sounds and open 5ths. Hodge is harmonically adventurous in this one&and we think you will like the fresh sounds here with some unexpected changes. A listener will not be able to "second-guess" this one. The energetic upbeat mood lasts throughout. Sounds festive.
