On Our Knees
( s a t b + piano )
For the First Baptist Cathedral Choir of Salt Lake City, Beth Bruce, Music Director.
First performance given by the First Baptist Cathedral Choir at First Baptist Church of Salt Lake City, Utah; Beth Bruce, conductor; Dawn Veree, soloist, with the composer at the piano.
A new arrangement of the popular spiritual "Let Us Break Bread" featuring a mezzo-soprano (or male) soloist. Piano accompaniment is unconventional and features hints of jazz with options for improvisation. Choral parts are very simple with lots of unison in the men. Perfect for gospel choirs.
