Kurt Erickson (Composer) Featured Piece: May The Lord Bless You & Keep You - SATB a cappella
Date: March 13, 2011
Greetings Choral & Vocal friends,
Hope this finds you all well and healthy. (I write after fighting off assorted colds and flu bugs for most of the winter: Worst. Cold Season. Ever.)
This month’s featured piece is my May The Lord Bless You And Keep You - a short, 2-minute SATB a cappella choral blessing I wrote in 2002 as part of my Composer Residency at San Francisco’s The National Shrine of Saint Francis of Assisi.
The ecumenical nature of the text makes the piece appropriate to be sung in concert or worship settings. You can hear a live recording of the piece while you look over the first couple of pages on my web site:
Duration: 2 Minutes
Thanks for checking it out!
