Update 12/11/21: Sheet music for this song is now available at gregscheer.com.
I am not an abstract composer. That is, I find it difficult to compose a piece for a performer who doesn’t exist and a concert that might not happen. But give me an ensemble, an opportunity, and a deadline and I’ll whip out my pencil and get to work. Such was the case this Palm Sunday when I had a willing choir and a flutist who I knew would practice whatever I wrote. The result is an energetic prelude for choir, flute, and congas; an arrangement of the Guatemalan “Santo es el Señor/Holy Is the Lord.”
