People have been singing and shouting “Alleluia” for thousands of years. Can one express joy and thanksgiving in a minor key? This new work by Baker answers, “Yes, indeed!”. Many compositions start softly and slowly and build in intensity all the way to the end. The form of this piece develops in the opposition direction; from molto gusto to andante. The piano accompaniment really sparkles and requires a skilled player. The vocal lines are intuitive and in sweet spot registers. This unique composition would make a great opener to any concert.
