Hymn for Harvard Chapel Service

On November 24th at 8:45 AM, Carson Cooman will be playing a chapel service consisting entirely of my music at Appleton Chapel of Memorial Church at Harvard University. In addition to performing the solo organ piece “Chanson Variations,” he will be joined by the Harvard Choral Fellows to premiere my Psalm 103 anthem and the hymn setting Add One More Seat.
The latter piece I wrote with my wife Kay Mitchell. We have dedicated it to our Pastor Jeffrey William Mays, who is retiring after many years of service at Christ Congregation in Princeton.

Here is a MIDI demo:

 

I know it is a bit on the early side, but I would love to see some of my Boston friends there if you can make it.
