Program Notes

The original themes used in this beautiful setting are intended to be played in the style of a slow Southern folk hymn, similar to Amazing Grace or Shenandoah. Using suspensions and resolutions as well as calm moments and powerfully emotional builds, this is a marvelous work with stylistic and dynamic range.

- Program Note by publisher
