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.
