About the Score
A very dramatic selection which could only be programmed by choirs with basses who are strong enough to handle a two-part split (harmonically, the piece relies on them). This text, by Carl Sandburg, resonates with me, as it is the prayer of a man to be put to the test and made stronger by his God so that he can better serve him. Using through-composition, I have tried to imitate the “trials” in the opening section, and the peace that comes from feeling part of a greater plan in the closing.
