Kyrie

Commissioned:
  • by the Tucson Flute Club.
Composed:
  • 1998
Premiered:
  • by the Tucson Flute Club for the National Flute Association Convention in Phoenix, AZ August 1998.
Audience Notes:
  • Kyrie is a series of free variations on Kyrie fons bonitatis, as found in the Liber Usualis, an official Catholic book of chant based on historical sources. 'Kyrie eleison' is Greek for 'Lord, have mercy upon us' and serves as the first section of a mass.

    The sound of several flutes playing unison Gregorian chant very softly has haunted me since I first heard it some years ago. When I was commissioned by the Tucson Flute Club this beautiful sound came to mind, and it led me to write this piece. The Kyrie fons bonitatis has an unusual form, with a two-part refrain. This refrain echos throughout my piece, and, after wandering far afield, brings it to a quiet close.

Psalm 23

Commissioned:

Composed:
  • 1981
Dedicated:
  • Katherine's mother
Premiered:
  • Premiered at Cathedral of St. John the Divine, NY, 1981.
Audience Notes:
  • Psalm 23 has a very personal and unusual history. Written in February, 1981, when my mother was permanently disabled by illness, it was given its first performance on Mother's Day, directed by the Reverend Dennis Michno at All-Saints church in New York. Dennis then obtained a commission from the Episcopal Diocese of New York to orchestrate the work. In this version the piece was first presented at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine during the Fifth Annual Festival of Worship and Music on October 24, 1981, by a chorus of 400 and orchestra. My mother passed away quietly the next day.
