Choral Compositions by Ken Galbreath
"Psalm 19 ('The heavens declare the glory of God...') provides the inspiring text for this work. The entire opening section was composed on a cool summer evening in 1998 while vacationing on the shores of beautiful Lake Michigan. One of my favorites and most frequently performed, Overture of Praise incorporates some polyphony, meter and tempo changes, a moderately difficult piano accompaniment, and an optional a cappella bridge section. For college, advanced-level high school, community and church choirs."
