Choral Review: We Praise You, Jesus, at Your Birth

we praise you jesus at your birthLooking for a new SAB anthem for Christmas this year? The Spring 2015 edition of the ALCM’s journal CrossAccent contains the following review of my Christmas anthem “We Praise You, Jesus, at Your Birth”:

Shaw has taken a great 14th-century German text that includes some stanzas by Martin Luther and provided a lovely new tune and accompaniment. This is a splendid opportunity for those who seek to provide classic Reformation texts accessible to choirs and faith communities of today. SAB voicing appears to be very natural with Shaw, and this should find great usage for Christmastide and Epiphanytide worship or concerts.
