Commissioned by the Allegro Community Children’s Choir of Kansas City, conducted by Christy Elsner. These two works were written specifically for the acoustic of the European cathedral spaces of Allegro Con Brio’s 2008 tour of Austria and the Czech Republic.

Recording of Allegro Con Brio in performance at the Kansas Music Educator’s Association conference.

Text from selected Psalms:

1. Praise Him
Praise Him! Praise Him in the heights!
Praise Him all His angels! Praise Him all his hosts!
Praise Him sun and moon. Praise Him all you stars of light! Praise Him!
Fire and hail, snow and clouds,
Stormy wind fulfilling His Word.
Mountains and hills, fruit trees and cedars,
Princes and judges, young men and maidens,
Old men and children, kings of the earth and all people!
Let them praise the name of the Lord (3X)
Let them praise Him!

2. Be Still
Be still. Be still and know that I am God.
Be still. Be still. Be still.
Though the waters roar, and though the mountains quake,
we will not fear. We will not fear.
God is in our midst.
God is in our midst.
God is in our midst.
The Lord of hosts is with us. The God of Jacob is our refuge,
Our refuge.
Be still. Be still.
Be still and know that I am God.
Be still.
