God of Our Fathers

God of Our Fathers is a challenging piece - Level 4. It has marts, mart lifts, key changes, shakes, triplets against duplets and my favorite, eighth note triplets against quarter note triplets. Ooooo, it is so exciting to hear. It is published by Alfred music. You can purchase it from them or from

I found this listing of God of Our Fathers in a church order of worship from First United Methodist Church in Iowa City, Iowa.
I always enjoy seeing that someone has played one of my pieces in worship or in a concert.
