We Love The Place, O God
For SATB Choir, Optional Percussion
Hinshaw Music, Inc. (HMC428)
With exhuberant vocal lines alternating between
homophony and simple polyphony, this piece has the feel of a madrigal.
A contrapuntal fabric is shared between two voices
while the other pair provides a recurring ostinato.
Free improvisation is encouraged by (optional)
percussion players using handbells, glockenspiel, chimes, or
vibraphone using only the "black" notes of the scale. This
easily allows children to participate.
The effect is enhanced when the congregation is
encircled by the percussion players.
