Program Notes

Published in 1892, O Ye That Love the Lord was originally score for choir and organ. The piece is a short anthem based on Psalm 97:10, which exhorts the believer to hate what is evil. For me, transcribing this piece meant having the opportunity to give further voice to Coleridge-Taylor and both an influential human and genius musician. It is my hope that performers and listeners alike are inspired by this work and the legacy of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor.
