WTS Bless the Lord

My friend Ron, knowing that I can’t say No to a quirky commission asked me to write a short refrain based on Psalm 103 for use at Western Theological Seminary’s graduation. What can I say? Not no, that’s for sure.

The graduation will be held in the massive Dimnent Chapel which has the reverb of the Grand Canyon, so I decided I needed to go easy on syncopations and quick rhythms. Instead, all the rhythms lay pretty flat from the congregation’s point of view, with ample opportunity for a good gospel pianist to put some life in between the notes. Speaking of gospel, the MP3 features the Gospel of Greg Mass Choir. Righteous!

Bless the Lord, MP3
