Arise my Love
Dan White commissioned this piece in 2017 as a gift for his bride, Linnea Olsen, on their wedding day. In the ceremony it received a lovely performance by a choir of friends under the direction of Allan Andrews – and was a delightful surprise for Linnea! Since then, with Dan’s permission, I have revised it a bit. Working on a recording next.
It makes a nice pairing with Set Me As a Seal Upon Your Heart (text also from Song of Songs), which exists in both SATB/pno and solo voice/piano versions
