Faber Edition: Choral Signature Series
A joyful, uplifting setting of Psalm 139. The organ part, with its sparkling use of high registers, subtly evokes the stars. This exquisitely complements the careful sculpted vocal lines.
Seek Him that maketh the seven stars and Orion
and turneth the shadow of death into the morning.
Alleluia, yea, the darkness shineth as the day,
the night is light about me.
Amos 5:8, Psalm 139
The Faber Choral Signature Series introduces a wealth of new or recently written choral music to choirs in search of fresh repertoire. The series draws in a rich diversity of living composers and includes both lighter and more challenging contemporary works, offering a thrilling array of varied styles.
