“Sing Praise to the LORD” ORCHESTRATION
Sing Praise to the LORD is scored for a chamber orchestra. This chamber configuration perfectly complements the intimate and emotive quality of the Psalms. The addition of ethnic percussion, guitars, and electric bass produces a contrasting rhythmic texture to the more sustained pieces. The smaller instrumentation also provides a more affordable way to accompany a complete performance with instrumentalists.
In addition to the original instrumentation of the score, the Sing Praise to the LORD orchestration also contains skillfully crafted supplemental parts for additional instruments: Bb Clarinet (doubles Oboe and English Horn), Bb Flugel Horn 1, 2 (doubles F Horn 1, 2), and Keyboard String Reduction.
