Fl, Ob, Perc I-VI, Timp, Harp, Strings21' SDGS 05-500 Conductor's Score, Harp Score$ 75.00 SDGS 05-500P Orchestra PartsThis concerto was written as a surprise gift for Kathy Bundock Moore, exquisite concert harpist and dear friend. Using the harp in an untraditional role, Berkey chose to use a smaller orchestra and to engage the solo instrument in "conversations" with the orchestral instruments. The work is in two movements, each having short cadenzas underscored by the orchestra.

(Bless'd be the Tie)Mixed Chorus, opt. Congregation/Audience, Harp or Piano4' SDG 05-106 Chorus Score$ 8.50SDG 05-106P Harp PartFamiliar and new melodies and rich harmonies create a fresh song from the traditional hymn, Bless'd be the Tie. Melodies soar to new heights and seem to take away one's breath by the length of singing and the lush sonorities. A beautiful solo gives weight to God's promise, while the purity in choral answer phrases captures the tenderness of the "Tie." The seamlessness of phrase upon phrase reminds one of sweet Eternity. Commissioned by Loree Lynn for the Tribe of Dan.
