1996 - A choral fugue of straight biblical text, performed in University Convocation (2000?). Singing above me are the amazing tenor Matt Hasmer, whose style always wet my eyes, and a red-headed counter tenor named Steve I was fortuned to work with at Centenary United Methodist, Virginia.
As with most of my sacred choral music, the lyrics were prayer to the God of my family, whom I was desperately yearning to also believe in.
Recorded poorly in mono, this was however the work's most accurate and passionate performance.
Out of the depths have I called to you, O LORD; LORD, hear my voice; let your ears consider well the voice of my supplication.
O Israel, wait for the LORD, for with the LORD there is mercy; O LORD; LORD, hear my voice.
If you, Lord, were to note what is done amiss, O Lord, who could stand? For there is forgiveness with you; therefore you shall be feared.
I wait for the LORD; my soul waits for him; in his word is my hope. My soul waits for the LORD, more than the watchmen for the morning.
