The Denington Choral Series, as endorsed by former King’s Singer member Philip Lawson, is a range of choral works set in both SATB and SSA formats that will enhance the repertoire of both Christian and secular choirs. The lyricists and composers are proven songwriters that bring a wealth of experience to the choral market and have provided songs that cover a broad spectrum of styles and difficulty and should appeal to many choirs who regularly present music in churches or concert halls.
Sing for Joy is Richard Phillips' setting of his own adaptation of Psalm 95. It was composed as the first movement of a 3-movement finale for the Salvation Army's national school of music in 1995. The remaining two movements were provided by other composers. Beginning with a softly spoken rhythmic pattern, it develops into a statement of the main theme with punchy rhythms and full harmonies. A softer and slower middle section is followed by a passage in unison, repeated with an upper part for a few sopranos, and then a bridge passage takes us back to the main theme, first in B major and then in triumphant C major as the chorus proclaims "Sing joy to the Lord."
