Michael Bedford’s setting of Psalm 96 is for SATB chorus, Trumpet in C and Organ. It was the winner of the 2004 AGO/ECS Publishing Award in Choral Composition. This setting would be an exciting opening selection for your fall concert. The text comes from the Book of Common Prayer, “Sing to the Lord a New Song.” Michael Bedford currently serves as Organist Choirmaster and Composer in Residence of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
