Op. 10 'Ode to Galileo'

Contemporary secular Cantata/Oratorio for 6 principals, SATB chorus and piano composed by contemporary classical music composer Joe St.Johanser, ideal for a choral concert

Eminently suitable for choirs looking for interesting and mildly challenging new works of a more secular nature. The music is sophisticated but not excessively difficult. Audiences are appreciative of the drama and the approachable music.
