    Randall Thompson's sacred music, e.g. hist Alleluia and The Best of Rooms, is in brother J.s. Bach's tradition of the text governing the music, yielding the indescribable richness in especially meaning, and sonority, needed for true worship. Soli Deo Gloria! PS Being acapella and the challenges...

    of maintaining true intonation this is really to be understood as advanced level stuff if it is to come off right, to say nothing of phrasing and articulation matters, background stuff to remain in the background after mastery that it not obscure the richness of meaning, as with Bach's sacred treasures. Soli Deo Gloria!

  • January 06, 2007 One of the Very Best!

    An absolutely gorgeous sacred octavo, which shall always be one of my very favorites. I have been a church musician for over 40 years and was a voice major in college. After singing this with my college choir, then directing it with my church choir, I found that this piece...

    requires a group of singers adept in pitch, accuracy and and expression. It is not easy, but is certainly well worth the time involved to create an everlasting inspirational musical memory.
