Nature: Creation

I mentioned the piece "Emersione" - you can now take a look at it by going to a new web site - - and click on the repertoire list.

At the same site, you can also look and listen to "Momentous". A piece for double chorus and instrumental ensemble. It's medium to difficult. Text is reflective - encouraging our pausing in our lives to regard and consider both past and present and to give acknowledgement and thanksgiving for the creation.

I recomend "The Creation - A rock Cantata" by Robert Bobrowitz and Steven Porter. It is a great piece telling the account through the words of Genesis. It is 11-13 minutes depending on the selected tempo. (Some of the markings are rather slow) I have heard it in both churches and in high schools. It was written in 1970 and is the piece that motivated me to change my college major to music ed. and sacred music. It is distributed through Hal Loenard (Walton Music)

'Majesty and Glory' would fit the category

I have been looking for years for a recording of that rock Cantata piece - The Creation. When I was in high school in the 70's I saw two other college groups perform it with guitar and drums - I never forgot about it and found out the writers names but could never find a recording of it. Does anyone know of one?

THE CREATION rock cantata that you all are talking about is published by Walton Music and they have a recording of it for sale as well.

There is also, of course, Aaron Copland's "In the Beginning" for unaccompanied choir and soprano soloist
