Jeff Beal: Poor in Spirit

SATB, Flugelhorn or other improvising instrument (Package of 10 octavos)


For SATB chorus, 2 descant sopranos, and Flugelhorn or other improvising instrument. "The text is a simple quote from the book of Matthew 5:3, 'Blessed are the poor in spirit.' Christ spoke often of poverty and the perils of wealth. In this context one can take it as spiritual or economic poverty; both seem relevant states in the modern world. This text is also a dedication to the Chapel where the work was premiered, which also doubles as a homeless shelter." -- Jeff Beal
