“A Psalm of Thanksgiving” Reviewed in CrossAccent

Psalm of ThanksgivingThe November 2013 edition of the ALCM’s journal CrossAccent contains the following review of my anthem A Psalm of Thanksgiving:

Based on Psalm 100, this is an attractive, cheerful piece for one- or two-part children’s choir. It is in an ABA form, the A being “Come, all the earth, and praise the Lord, Be joyful and sing, for the Lord is good,” and the gentler B section being, “You know the Lord is God who made us, and we are his.” The A material returns with a fun Alleluia descant. Shaw gives kids a singable, solid piece for Thanksgiving or throughout the year.
