Commissioned by the Whitman College Chamber Singers with Dr. Jeremy Mims as conductor. A setting of Acts 2:44-46 for a cappella choir.

"[Dunphy's] “Together” (the words are taken from the Acts of the Apostles, 2:44-46) is a beautiful piece with fascinating complexity. [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]

Melissa has a beautiful, clear and direct language. Without being trite or overly sentimental, her music speaks to the heart through gorgeous harmony and lucid text setting. [Boston Choral Ensemble]


And all they that believed were together and had all things common. Their possessions and goods they sold and divided them to all, according as every one had need. And continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they took their meat with gladness and simplicity of heart.
