Praise the Living God Who Sings

Description

Commissioned by St. Barnabas Lutheran Church, Plymouth, Minnesota, for the dedication concert of its new J.F. Nordlie organ on April 1, 2001. Praise the Living God Who Sings is a festive choral setting of the text by David Robb of Dalton, Georgia. Robb’s text was inspired by Zephaniah 3:17, “He will rejoice over you with singing.” The three stanzas are set in fast-slow-fast form, with the opening and closing sections in 5/4 meter and the pastoral middle section in 3/4. Alleluias resound throughout the anthem, with the final strain repeating in octave unison the dramatic reminder that “God still sings!”
