The invitation to compose an anthem for Easter Sunday from my home parish of St. Dominic's Catholic Church in San Francisco, Simon Berry, conductor, was for me an opportunity to fulfill a long-desired wish: to respond to Randall Thompson's 'Alleluia,' which I have known by heart since I was 15 years old. I have long admired the expressive lyricism and immensely satisfying formal unfolding of Thompson's masterpiece. My setting is for mixed chorus divisi in 8 parts, and is based on two contrasting melodic motives which are continually developed and move through many tonalities before returning to the bright opening tonality of A major. -David Conte.
