Forever Toward You was commissioned by Plymouth Congregational Church, Minneapolis, Minnesota, in honor of Claire Colliander. The text is a translation of a poem by Rainer Maria Rilke (1875–1926) from The Book of Monastic Life. Rilke’s poem speaks of a desire to encounter the Creator—the You in the title of this composition—and of the necessity for doing so through action, not thought alone. The tempo of the music alternates between those ideas of activity (Allegro energico, Buoyant) and reflection (Poco andante, Molto moderat), giving this three minute piece quite a bit of variety and interest. Duration: 3:00
