Inspire! Choral Plus Folio-Canticle of Assurance

  

This setting of verses from Psalm 139 is for mixed voices and piano accompaniment with an optional flute (or violin) obbligato. Varying homophonic textures are used in the text setting, which builds to a dramatic climax, followed by a short contrapuntal "Alleluia, Amen" to end the piece. The piano accompaniment is mildly challenging, providing support to the voices without doubling them.
