Sunday music- Craig Courtney: Be Filled with the Spirit

Here is my performance from February of Craig Courtney's Be Filled with the Spirit. The performance was at First Community Church, Ronald Jenkins, Minister of Music conducting.

I am playing on a Hawkins B mouthpiece with a Legere Signature reed.

The arching upward theme, first in the clarinet and then in the choir, paints a beautiful representation of the ecstatic optimism of the words.

    Very nice. Craig Courtney has written some really nice works and this one is no exception. It's especially nice to hear the clarinet featured. Awesome!

      Thanks. I think this piece would also be nice with clarinet and solo voices. I get lost in the sound of the loud choir.
