Program Notes

Crowns of Glory is built on a shape note melody called Jubilee. The piece is meant to capture the joy and reverence evident in early American sacred harp singing. By reframing the pentatonic turn with modern harmonies, it is my hope to communicate these emotions to a 21st century audience.

The piece opens with a burst of sound, like a spontaneous shout of joy. The following section is more serene, but a ceaseless motor in the percussion parts keeps the piece gradually building to another apex. A Brief slower section in G minor gives a sense of awe before something bigger than oneself. The "joyful motor" figure interjects, then begins to build as the melody moves back toward the home key. The last section is an extended recap of the beginning, with the melody slipping into ¾ as it barrels to the end.
