praise ye the lord
commissioned by Worcester College Chapel Choir
premiere by Worcester College Chapel Choir at Worcester College, Oxford 13 May 2019
Commissioned by Worcester College Chapel Choir, praise ye the lord focuses on the joy of the world around us. Using Psalm 148 as the text the piece opens with solo organ playing transcriptions of stardust, with the choir joining in based on transcriptions of solar flares. This short but upbeat piece is unashamedly exuberant and attempts to emulate the ecstatic nature of the psalm.
