Consecration of Bishop Anne Dyer

  • St Andrew's Cathedral 28 King St Aberdeen AB24 5AX United Kingdom (map)

I was honored to be asked to write a setting of Psalm 96 for the Consecration of Canon Anne Dyer as Bishop of the Diocese of Aberdeen and Orkney, first female bishop in the Scottish Episcopal Church. Photos from the event along with a video and orders of service can be found here (though I was in fact in the congregation with my mom and not singing in the choir). 

The piece is for upper voices (SSA) + organ, and as with most psalm settings it revolves around a couple of chord progressions - in this instance, inspired by different fiddle tunings used in Orcadian, Shetlandic, and Nordic fiddle traditions.
