Psalm 57: Awake Up, My Glory

“Awake up, my glory” is a setting of Psalm 57 [KJV]. Sungji Hong wrote the music and submitted the setting. This text is a call for all of creation to joyfully praise the Lord our God. I tried to capture this idea of joy at God’s unmerited goodness and grace.

How does this psalm piece interpret the psalm? 
Awake up, my glory is a setting of Psalm 57 (KJV). This text is a call for all of creation to joyfully praise the Lord our God. I tried to capture this idea of joy at God’s unmerited goodness and grace.   

It was written in the spring of 2019 for the Deus Ex Musica composition project A Musical Exploration of the Psalms,” performed by Megan Roth and Julia Carey at Old South Church in Boston on June 28, 2019 The piece is scored for soprano and piano.
