My short anthem for SATB choir, Morning Hymn, has been published by Cypress Choral Music. The piece was commissioned by the Summer Institute of Church Music in honour of Patricia Wright, organist extraordinaire at Metropolitan United Church in Toronto and the recipient of the SICM’s 2017 Fellowship in Church Music in recognition of her lifetime achievements. Pat’s close friend and collaborator, Patricia Orr, wrote the text, and the piece was premiered in the summer of 2017 by the Institute’s choir under the direction of Evelyn Grieger.
Although intended as a church anthem, Orr’s celebratory text really makes this a suitable work for any occasion, sacred or secular.
