Description:

The first piece is inspired by Psalm 102:1, “Hear my prayer, O Lord.” This piece is a passacaglia, which is a series of variations over a basso ostinato. It begins with a pleading theme played by the solo violin. An optional bridge connects to the next psalm. In the second piece, Alan takes his inspiration from Psalm 30:11, “You have turned my mourning into dancing.” This psalm is set as a tambourin and variants. A tambourin is a duple-meter dance of Provençal origin, often with a drum-like rhythm. The psalm concludes with a boisterous fiddler’s reel.
