What is Alleluia by Jake Runestad?

Alleluia is a choral piece for SATB choir with divisi, unaccompanied. It was commissioned by Brady Allred and the Salt Lake Choral Artists / Salt Lake Vocal Artists for their performance at the 2014 ACDA Western Division Conference in Santa Barbara, CA. The piece is about 3 minutes long and has a difficulty level of medium to advanced.

The piece begins with a rhythmic declaration of joy and builds intensity through metric changes, tonal shifts, glissandi, and hand clapping. The lively exultation soon gives way to a reverent meditation with soaring melodic lines and lush harmonies. The dancing rhythms from the beginning return with a gradual build in intensity as one's praises rise to the sky.

The composer, Jake Runestad, explains the inspiration behind the piece: "Through history, the singing of 'alleluia' has served as an outward celebration as well as an introspective expression of praise. I wanted to capture both aspects of this word in my piece by creating contrasting sections that explore different moods and textures."
