Sing Unto the Lord is one of my earliest works, dating from the year 1984. I used three themes to enhance the concepts expressed in the Psalm. Each theme is first expressed separately, then together at the work’s climax. Although this version calls for organ and trumpet to accompany the choir, the piece was originally written for piano and SATB chorus and has been successfully performed either way.
