Kjos Music, 2016

SATB, keyboard  Editors' Choice

Solid diatonic harmonies and rhythms bring flavor to Timothy Shaw’s setting of this “achingly beautiful tune” from The Sacred Harp, “New Prospect.” In ABA form, the music itself returns to home after a contrasting, quasi-canonic middle section. Useful throughout the church year, or for programs featuring American music, hymnody, and for memorial tributes or other dedications.
