The Be-Attitude Chorale

“The Be-Attitude Chorale” – listen:

Album Art By Word To Flesh: The Be-Attitude Chorale Be provocative Be kind Be loving Be giving Be spiteful

4-Part a capella, with brother Lance doubling the top three parts. I had a cold when we recorded this, so my bass part is more resonant than it would have been on a healthy day.

Don’t remember the context, but this wordplay was a result of thinking on the Beatitudes found in Jesus’ Sermon On The Mount.

At the piano my hands fell on a stack of perfect 5ths. The approach to harmony starts in the key of G Major, but quickly twists elsewhere, resting in the land of E Major.

Here’s the piano voice memo demo:
