A Place Where Angels Sing (2015), a setting of a prayer by John Keble, is dedicated to Scott Allen Jarrett. It was premiered under his direction with the Marsh Chapel Choir for the Boston University Baccalaureate Service on May 15, 2016.

Lord, make my heart a place where angels sing!
For surely thoughts low-breathed by Thee
Are angels gliding near on noiseless wings;
And where a home they see

Swept clean, and garnished with adoring joy,
They enter in and dwell,
And teach that heart to swell
With heavenly melody, their own untired employ.

John Keble (1792–1866)
