He that dwelleth in the secret place

for mixed choir (SATB divisi) a cappella

Becky McGlade

 

  • Suitable for liturgical and concert performance
  • Part of the Contemporary Choral Series
  • Choral score with piano accompaniment for rehearsal only
  • Intermediate level

 

A highly effective short motet, suitable for liturgical and concert performance by intermediate choirs written by Becky McGlade, one of the fine emerging voices in the choral world.

He that dwelleth in the secret place is set on the opening two verses of Psalm 91, which tells of God’s protection for those who follow Him. The gentle dissonances, occasional shifting tonalities and subtle textural variations are characteristic of McGlade’s music, as is the frequently changing metre. These serve the text and raise the effectiveness of the piece in portraying the meaning of the words in such a beautiful manner.
