Composer Liptak, chair of the Composition Department at the Eastman School of Music, chose the singing style known as shape note singing, from the eighteenth century, that was typically vigorous and unrestrained--tunes being mostly folk melodies, using open fifths and fourths, and based in a particular key or mode. Wondrous Love, the hymn chosen from a best-known shape note collection, The Sacred Harp, is a very old melody and unbridled in exuberance.
