Works of the Heart
Words and Music of Laurence Rosania
Lift hearts and voices in praise with seven liturgical songs from Laurence Rosania
Seek divine beauty through word and song
Beauty can transform the human spirit, providing a direct pathway to the divine beauty itself. Offering six fresh compositions by Laurence Rosania and a bilingual version of "Supper of the Lord," Works of the Heart weds profound texts to music that is memorable, moving and, most significantly, beautiful.
Engage musicians, choirs and the assembly
With styles ranging from solemn a cappella motets to works influenced by Duke Ellington's sacred concerts at Grace Cathedral, this collection will engage musicians, choirs and members of the assembly. Enjoy flexible arrangements to fit the needs of your ensemble, whether you have a single organist or additional instrumentalists for violin, cello, flute and saxophone.
Hear a new bilingual version of "Supper of the Lord"
"The Call of Micah" expressively echoes the ancient Hebrew text of the prophet. Jaime Cortez's highly anticipated Spanish translation and Luke Mayernik's exquisite arrangement breathe new life into "Supper of the Lord/Cena del Señor." The title track juxtaposes simple, heartfelt text with the rich and sophisticated musical palette of jazz.
