About this work:


This piece was commissioned by Foundry United Methodist Church and was to be part of a program including Masses bu Hans Leo Hassler and Ludwig Beethoven.  Inspired by the Mass to Saint Anthony by Lou Harrison,  I decided I would write the piece in unison, using timbral effect and solos for  contrasts.  The original scoring is for string orchestra, trumpet soloist and keyboards.  There have been 2 revisions: chorus, organ, trumpet and percussion and chorus and chamber orchestra.

Year composed: 1996
Duration: 00:30:00
Ensemble type: Chorus, with or without Solo Voices:Chorus with Chamber Ensemble
Instrumentation notes: keyboard parts are scored for piano, celeste and harmonium.
