Abide With Me
arr. Moses Hogan

Moses Hogan likely needs no introduction, so I will leave you to enjoy one of his most piercingly beautiful works.

O Praise the Lord
Ulysses Kay

UNL Chamber Singers Marques L. A. Garrett, conductor O Praise the Lord (from "A New Song: 3 Psalms for Chorus) - Ulysses Kay

A New Jersey native, nephew of jazz musician King Oliver, and one-time Paul Hindemith student, Ulysses Kay composed in a neoclassical style. Known mainly for his orchestral and choral compositions, Kay also wrote five operas. He spent the bulk of his career on faculty at Lehman College at the City University of New York.
