Programme Notes / Performance Details :

"Liturgical Music" is a work for large percussion ensemble in six movements. Biblical scripture or sacred readings inspire each movement. Despite the sacred implication, the work is intended for concert performance, although it could conceivably be performed within the service of a Christian church. The movements are organized as follows with corresponding scripture or readings:

I. Processional
Sing praises to the Lord, who dwells in Zion! (Psalm 9:11)

II. Psalm 47
Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy! (Psalm 47:1)

III. Prayer (In Memoriam: Barry Larkin)
The souls of the righteous are in the hand of God and no torment will ever touch them. (Wisdom of Solomon 3:1-9)

IV. Dance
Praise him with timbrel and dance. (Psalm 150:4)

V. Benediction
Lead me, Lord, Lead me in thy righteousness; Make thy way plain before my face. (Psalm 5:8)

VI. Recessional
O for a thousand Tongues to sing, My great Redeemer’s praise, The glories of my God and King, The triumphs of his grace. (Charles Wesley, 1739)
