Composition: "The Lost is Found" (SATB+Piano)

by Michael and Jenny Whatcott

January 1, 2020

Well, it's another "first" for me, this time in the form of a full-blown arrangement for SATB chorus and piano. The source material is the hymn my wife and I wrote about 18 months ago. I probably never would have had the guts to do this had it not been for a former music teacher of mine who challenged me to start composing years ago. At the time I didn't think much of it, but a seed had been planted. I'm pretty happy with the result, a phrase which hear means that the computer-generated audio allows me to imagine a nice performance. Now, to hear an actual choir sing it...

I've prepared a full score as well as separate parts for the pianist and choir members, which should cut down on the number of full scores printed.
