Program Notes

I was commissioned to Variations Using Hymns and I didn't know so much hymns, so I went to the bookstore and got a hymns collection. From the more than 500 hymns in the book alone, I hit this one.

The hymn used is from Psalm 103, and the melody is called St. Nicholas. By the way, this Saint Nicholas is the origin of Santa Claus. This is an orthodox variation in which the melody is transferred to each part.
