Of Things Hoped for

Of Things Hoped for

Product Number: 12-111

Composer: Thomas, David Evan



Of Things Hoped For begins with a modest arching phrase, supported by a descending pedal line. The ensuing meditation develops a new melismatic idea along with toccata elements, leading to a grand statement. A dance follows, based on the melisma, which stretches and flips the material. The little bass line from the opening re-asserts itself as a soprano tune, first in a quiet B-major episode, then triumphantly and in D major in the trumpet. Thomas was commissioned to write this work by Marilyn Biery in honor of James Biery's birthday in 2001; it was premiered by James in May, 2001, at the Cathedral of St. Paul in St. Paul, MN.

Part of the Concert Organ Series.
