Unison/2-part, piano, optional C treble instrument
A lovely, gentle proclamation of thanks, “A Psalm of Thanksgiving” will be a beautiful addition to any worship service. The vocal parts are nicely supported by the accompaniment, offering a good opportunity for part-singing. The addition of the optional C treble instrument part adds an expressive quality, which furthers the spirit of gratefulness.
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. (CrossAccent, November 2013)
