Fauré’s “Libera Me”

On November 5, 2013, I sang the opening solo for our lab choir’s rendition of “Libera me,” from Gabriel Fauré’s 1890 Requiem setting. In this recording, Michael Serrano is conducting a few LSU student instrumentalists and singers, and overall having a good time. Forgive my anachronistic Roman Latin.

James Albert Wiggins’s Doxology

Score in PDF

This is a reharmonization of the Old Hundredth Doxology, made by an old friend who used to sit beside me in my church’s choir. The harmonies here are quite crunchy and fun. James Albert wrote several small tunes for organ, many of which were played (and one of which I sang) at his funeral back in 2009. Interesting fellow.
