Dearly Loved, Holy and Chosen (Ryan Kelly) added to the Shaw Music catalog

Ryan Kelly has written a stunning motet-like anthem for unaccompanied SAB voices using an adaptation of Colossians 3:12-17 as the text. The result is a fitting reminder to “clothe yourselves with the love of Christ.” Refined choral writing and narrow vocal ranges make this anthem suitable for use by choirs of any size. Program this during Lent or anytime throughout the year. Preview the score and listen to a fine demo recording here.

Seven Choral Amens published by Shaw Music

A new piece published exclusively by Shaw Music is my set of Seven Choral Amens (SATB, keyboard). These seven short choral Amens, each set in common meter, are useful following hymns and pastoral prayers or as choral benedictions. Voicings are SAB and 2-part mixed, with ample chordal support from the keyboard accompaniment, which may be played on either organ or piano. Refined choral writing, within narrow vocal ranges, makes these Amens suitable for use by choirs of any size. View the entire score here, and order copies for your choir by clicking here.
