   The musical passion that emerges from the pen of composer Kevin Memley is evident in this stirring setting of the Stabat Mater. Four part, a cappella voices sing in counterpoint and in chorus with tender and compelling harmonies. There is something unusually authentic about Memley?s compositions, and this one will find use in the church and in the concert hall.

When the hymntune HENDON does appear it is in a welcomed salute.

Those Who Wait Upon The Lord
 

 Those Who Wait Upon The Lord 
Composer: Kevin A. Memley 

Voicing: SATB 
Season: General  Released: January 2011  Difficulty: Medium
Sample Sound File Listen
   Once you begin hearing this piece you are drawn in...you want to sing it. The ''eagle's wings'' text is one of the most frequently set to music, and yet this one sounds like it has always been there, just not revealed until now. The essence of ''wait'' is captured in the opening section, which gives way to a new tempo, building with the ''mounting on wings.'' The true soaring takes place with a 12/8 meter, the voices building in triumph. A final return to the ''waiting'' theme provides an assurance that has permeated the entire composition. Excellent for church and school.
