Come, Come, Ye Saints

ComeComeSATB
Baritone Solo with SATB choir and piano
ComeComeSolo
Baritone Solo art song with piano

Come, Come, Ye Saints is a classic American folk hymn written as the Mormon pioneers journeyed West. This modern setting of the text evokes the hardships and joys of early pioneers. With its refrain of ”All is well, all is well!” this piece is ultimately triumphant and optimistic. The piano part is challenging and beautiful.

This setting was written for Glenn Gordon’s Reflections on Come, Come, Ye Saints project. The original version for baritone solo with SATB choir and piano was premiered by the Melbourne Chamber Choir in 2009. A solo baritone art song version was added in 2015. Both are available through MusicSpoke.

Every Child of God [SSA or Double Choir SATB/SSA]

Every Child of God

Every Child of God was written for the 20th anniversary of the Greeley Children’s Chorale. The piece features a beautiful piano part, a partner-song style chorus of Alleluias, and a culminating canonical passage on the text, “”Let all my work be praise.”

Every Child of God was originally written for and performed by a double choir – an adult SA(T)B choir and a children’s SSA choir. The double choir version is available, as well as a version for SSA treble choir alone.

Although God is mentioned in the title, the text is not overtly religious. This piece is appropriate for sacred or secular performance settings.

“Every Child of God” is available through MusicSpoke.

I Had No Time to Hate [SATB]

notime

A timeless statement of tolerance and love is brought to life in this approachable setting by Nathan Howe. The message and music are ideal for high school and college choirs.

The beautiful text by Emily Dickinson is strikingly relevant today:

I HAD no time to hate, because
The grave would hinder me,
And life was not so ample I
Could finish enmity.

Nor had I time to love; but since
Some industry must be,
The little toil of love, I thought,
Was large enough for me.

I Had No Time to Hate is available through MusicSpoke.

Why Not? [SSA or Double Choir SA/SATB]

Why Not?

Why Not? was commissioned as a combined piece celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Greeley Children’s Chorale and the 50th anniversary of the Greeley Chorale. The playful lyrics look forward to various stages of life, imagining the amazing things that will surely happen in the future. However, the dreaming always leads back to the question, “Why not just be happy now?”

With a rollicking 4-hand piano accompaniment, this accessible piece for young voices is available in its original double choir voicing (Unison or 2-part children’s chorus with SATB chorus) or in a two-part treble voicing. The double-choir version is terrific for district-wide festivals with varying ages of singers, and the 2-part treble version is ideal for children’s choirs and women’s choirs through early high school.

Why Not? is available through MusicSpoke.
