Hal Hopson takes the music of one of the great composers of all time and gives us a sopisticated two-part rendering from Handel’s Dettingen Te Deum paired with selected verses from the Psalms. This can serve as a wonderful pedagogical tool to help teach your choir to confidently sing Baroque phrasing and melismatic figures. This piece is an ideal choice for programming early in the year as you work to build your choir’s voice and establish good, consistent singing habits.
