A Psalm of Life
For SATB Choir and Piano  (ca. 5:00)

Gladde Music Publications  (GMP0501)
$1.95

 

This irrepressible, optimistic music features a relentless piano accompaniment that propels the singers in their celebration of life!  The choral parts are quite accessible, featuring a haunting "murmuring" effect.  The piano part, while appearing challenging, is very patterned in its hand positions .....not as difficult as it sounds.  The music begins wistfully and evocatively, building and pulsating to a powerful ending!


This famous 1838 poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow used to be required reading in schools across America.
Many people can still recite, "Tell me not in mournful numbers 'Life is but an empty dream'!"
