Shout joy!

First line:
O sing unto God
composer
author of text

 
Madeleine L’Engle’s poem Shout joy! bursts with gratitude, energy and whimsy. It offers an unabashed moment of ecstatic worship in the spirit of the joyful Psalms. My setting of this poem seeks to honour L’Engle’s clear and beautiful expression. The pushing and pulling of tempos capture her spontaneous utterances. I am particularly drawn to her refrain of ‘Jah!’, which simplifies the traditional ‘Alleluia!’ into a single syllable shout.
