Resonances and Alleluias
This engaging original composition was commissioned in honor of Fred Gramann, for his 30 years of music ministry at the American Church in Paris. The piece opens with a rhythmic "fuguing tune" in a minor key, which appears in a variety of ways throughout the work. The sections are labeled "Lightly," "Slowly, with feeling," then concluding with a joyful "Allegretto," with a rhythmic malleted bass part. Techniques include LV, malleted bells on the table and shaking. Written in c minor, F Major, and C Major, measures total 96.
