This amazing work, premiered by the Los Angeles Master Chorale, Grant Gershon, director, is a contrast of homophonic refrains against polyphonic verses. Beginning with the austere Sacred Harp tune “Heavenly Home,” California composer Kirchner sets “hallelujahs” leaping and plunging and circling through the choir to thrilling results. Duration: ca. 3:30.
Arranged for SSATBB voices by Shawn Kirchner.
