Craig Courtney is a master of choral color all in his own style. Although most of his accompaniments feature piano, this organ accompaniment is most effective.

Selected for the 2013 Labor Day at the Cathedral (for adult singers), Craig will be conducting five of his own compositions, this being one. As beautiful as this setting is, it is highly exciting to think of the sound of 200 adults singing this anthem in the National Cathedral with full orchestra and the composer conducting.

Beautiful indeed!
