The Rev’d Benjamin Straley is rector of S. Stephen’s Church in Providence, former organist of Washington National Cathedral, and a noted concert organist who performed here in 2020. He wrote this song of praise for the Cathedral, and our choir had the honor of premiering it while singing there in July, 2019. His tempo marking is “with much verve,” so listen once to the refrain and then help us make a joyful noise to God, even from the comfort of your home!
