Program Notes

Praise to the Lord draws its thematic material solely from three hymns:

  • Praise to the Lord - "Stralsund Gesangbuch" (1665)
  • Now thank we all our God - Johann Crüger (1598-1662)
  • Doxology - Louis Bourgbois "Genevan Psalter" (1551)

The composition evokes the splendor of the antiphonal brass choirs of the late Renaissance as well as the polythematic architecture of the Baroque fugue.

Praise to the Lord was commissioned by Donald H. Ripplinger for the Point Music Camp of the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point, Wisconsin; its first performance, in the summer of 1974, was prepared by Dr. Ralph G. Laycock.
