Canticle of Creation
Arranger Hart Morris bases this energetic, harmonically suspenseful arrangement on the strong tune LASST UNS ERFREUEN (All Creatures of Our God and King). A separate percussion part is available, with cues for the percussion marked in the ringer/director score. An extended opening section moves through several tonal centers and dynamic ranges before it gives birth to the tune, which is treated in imitative fashion. Arranged in C Major, measures total 104.
