Program Notes

Based on the 17th-century chorale Lobe den Herren, known in English as Praise to the Lord, the hymn tune is stated first by a solo flute accompanied by percussion and muted trumpets, evoking the sound of liturgical bells. Three variations follow that represent the playful exuberance of childhood, the sentimental dance of youth, and the triumphant celebration of lives well lived.
