Canticle (3 movements) - flute, harp/piano



  • Canticle

    Canticle is a theme and variation in three movements inspired by the Mormon pioneers' trek west. It is said that each company had a musician and the pioneers played, and danced, and sang at night after walking all day, showing the healing power of music.

    The form of Canticle is taken from a scripture: "If thou art merry, praise the Lord with singing, with music, with dancing, and with a prayer of praise and thanksgiving. If thou art sorrowful, call on the Lord thy God with supplication, that your souls may be joyful. (D&C 136:28-29)

    The three movements of Canticle are:

    I. Sorrowful
    II. Singing...Music...Dancing
    III. Prayer of Thanksgiving

    This piece works equally well for harp or piano accompaniment with flute or other treble instruments. Also available for Bb Clarinet. (See below)
