Program Notes

A creed is a statement of belief. This piece, while not literally programmatic, seeks to convey a sense of affirmation and trust – those ideals considered to be the basis of humanity. The result is magic which is descriptive and atmospheric, conjuring a variety of moods ranging from reflection to exultation.
