erformed by the Kjos Studio Choir
recorded Jan 2008

This piece is set in the pastoral key of F major as I wanted to emphasize the gentleness of the text and the idea of a community of love undisturbed by the distractions and hectic pace of today's world.
The piece is dedicated to Chuck Robinson of the University of Missouri/Kansas City Conservatory. I was fascinated by Chuck's insights into music, but even more so his insights into the human condition when he was a lead clinician at an illinois ACDA summer event. I'm pleased to have formed a friendship with this remarkable man.

Complete perusal score available upon request.


(John 13:34-35)

A new commandment give I unto you, saith the Lord,
That ye love one together
as I have loved you,
that even so ye love one another.
By this shall every man know you are my disciples,
if ye have love one to another.
