Notes:

  • Commissioned by Episcopal Diocese of NY. Premiered at Cathedral of St. John the Divine , NY, 1981

  • Psalm 23 has a very personal and unusual history. Written in February, 1981, when my mother was permanently disabled by illness, it was given its first performance on Mother's Day, directed by the Reverend Dennis Michno at All-Saints church in New York. Dennis then obtained a commission from the Episcopal Diocese of New York to orchestrate the work. In this version the piece was first presented at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine during the Fifth Annual Festival of Worship and Music on October 24, 1981, by a chorus of 400 and orchestra. My mother passed away quietly the next day.
