Honneur a Toi – SATB Setting 1

This is a SATB setting for the hymn that is sung by Brothers (and others) to honor St. John Baptist de La Salle on celebratory occasions. The piece was commissioned by Br. George Van Grieken, FSC, in 1999 for choirs in Lasallian institutions, It was written in such a way that a choir could sing “around” the main melody being sung by a larger group (such as the students). A second composition was commissioned in 2010, but this time for choirs alone. For that version, Deke chose to place the melody within a challenging rhythmic context and rich harmonic style. Both versions are available on this website.

Other settings for the hymn (Organ, melody line, etc.) may also be found on this website.
