An intense work, this original composition is base on Psalm 130, "Out of the Depths I Cry to Thee." The largo beginning makes use of the augmented 4th scale step (tri-tone) and sets the mood. An agitato section follows with driving eighth-note passages of mallets on tabled bells. The meter begins in 4/4 with a few changes to 2/4 until measure 41 where a fff 7/8 section begins. The largo section returns and gradually leads into a tranquillo section and at last to con brio ending passage.The text of this psalm comes alive musically and should provide a provoking offering to worship or concert.
