Joyous Recessional was composed a few years ago for an event at St. Mark’s Church in Augusta, GA, when the pastor just couldn’t come up with a piece he liked for us to use.
 

It is melodic and thematic, formally structured, and relies on quartal harmonies with melody-driven mixed meters.

 

Joyous Recessional is available for $18.00 for hard copy and $15.00 for pdfs.
 

This piece is unrecorded, so the mp3 is a FINALE MIDI audio extract (not the greatest sound, but you can get an idea of what the piece sounds like.
