Program Notes

Love Divine is a transcription for band of Goodall’s choral setting of the Charles Wesley text Love Divine, All Loves Excelling. Like the traditional hymn tunes to which the text is frequently sung, Goodall’s setting is strophic -- a repetition of one musical section for each verse of text. Unlike similar settings, Goodall includes an introduction, an interlude, and concludes the otherwise unstable final verse with a coda, based on the opening phrase.
