Composition update: I have finished a new piece, this one a commission from a bass vocalist named Cody Muller. It is a setting of Psalm 23, which I have aptly titled “The Lord Is My Shepherd.”
It was a joy to write for him; he’s one of those singers with a low range that only comes around once in a long while, and so to write for his kind of talent has been a pleasure. I will be working with him to secure a recording of the work, as well as working to adapt it for people with higher vocal ranges and arranging the work for string quartet accompaniment, which it was practically made for.
