Paul Tate

Paul Tate

Many composers have a “sound,” a certain combination of style and musical influences that are unique to them. Paul Tate’s “sound” is a combination of the many influences that have shaped his musical life: liturgical music, musical theater, pop music, and more. Join co-hosts Zack Stachowski and Matt Reichert as they speak with Paul about his setting of Psalm 137: “By the Waters of Babylon” and dig into the Paul Tate “sound.” They’ll speak about composition, text painting, writing piano accompaniment, and more!

So, please open your hymnal to "By the Waters of Babylon"!
