Program Notes

Matins was written for Bruce Moss and the BGSU [Bowling Green State University] Wind Symphony in honor of the 50th Anniversary of the Reading and Directors Clinic. It received its premiere at the same in January 2008.

As part of the Divine Office of Roman Catholicism, Matins is traditionally prayed at night, especially by cloistered religious who still observe the prayer times in their strictest sense. By the 10th century it was combined with Lauds and was prayed during the early morning hours. Because it is both a prayer of the night and one of the morning, this composition attempts to retain the character of each -- somewhat ethereal and mysterious with elements of joyous outburst.
