Awake, My Soul

Pinterest new post announcement.jpg

for SATB chorus and piano

Based on Psalm 57: 8-11
Beckenhorst Press - BP2214

Description

A brilliant, pulsating piano introduction announces the dawn and invites the voices to join with escalating calls to "Awake, my soul!" As the pulsing continues, the vocal counterpoint gives way to the chordal acclamation, "I will awaken the dawn!" This setting of Psalm 57:8-11 requires an above average accompanist and an energetic choir, but the artistic result will be worth the effort.

Text

Awake, my soul, awake! I will awaken the dawn! Be exalted, O God, among the heavens; let Thy glory be over all the earth. For Thy steadfast mercy is great, Thy faithfulness reaches to the skies. - based on Psalm 57: 8-11
