Only using two words, Gloria, Alleluia is a great concert opener or closer. It is meant to express the celebration of angels singing of praise to heaven's newest member. With a slow middle section representing the meeting between this new soul and his Maker, the piece repeats the beginning representing his full acceptance into the kingdom.
Dedicated to my friend, Matthew "Peaches" Peacher in honor of his Baptism this past summer.
Voicing: SATB divisi.
