How shall I sing that majesty – choir and piano


Setting for choir and piano by David W Solomons of the famous poem by the 17th century poet and priest John Mason.
This particular setting was composed with a small mixed-ability choir in mind, so the voices are mainly in two parts (men’s and women’s voices), splitting to four parts (SATB) occasionally, where the words suggest it.
The style is reminiscent of the 19th century although the piano part does go into 20th century style syncopation at times.
