Program Notes

Chorale Prelude: For the Beauty of the Earth was written in loving memory of my grandfather John Draper. Mr. Draper was an expert gardener, hunter, and fisherman as well as a deeply religious man. Aside from being a favorite hymn of mine, For the Beauty of the Earth seemed to fit his faith and high love of nature.
