This rhythmic setting of the traditional Te Deum text (in English) is ideal for Easter Day, dedication or anniversary of a church, dedication of an organ, or any festive service of thanksgiving. The pre-recorded heavenly voices add an unforgettable aura to this brilliant work. The easy choral writing make it an ideal “mass choir anthem” for a choral festival.

For the potential listeners, it is important to maintain an element of surprise regarding the pre-recorded material. Thus Centennial Te Deum should not be advertised as a piece for choir, brass, percussion, and pre-recorded music. The name of the sound engineer should be placed rather inconspicuously in your bulletin or program. And it is important to tell the choristers not to talk about the taped material with others in advance of the performance. This piece will have much more impact if the listener does not expect the taped ‘heavenly voices.’
