Commissioned by the Texas Two-Year College Choral Directors Association in celebration of their 40th anniversary and composed for the 2013 Texas Two-Year College All-State Choir, Joey M. Martin, conductor.
Alleluia is joyous, celebratory, and invigorating music. I wanted to explore the percussive qualities of the voice and the lyrical capabilities of the marimba. The two instruments mesh well together, and each informs the other, contributing an energetic and propulsive drive to the work.
