Strength, My Fainting Heart (2014) horn, trombone + tuba

This piece written in collaboration with the International Low Brass Trio is my own tinkering with the commonly played Lutheran hymn “My Faith Looks Up to Thee” by Lowell Mason. The title is a line plucked from one of the stanzas. In my own experience, each passing wave of faith and then doubt has had larger and larger reciprocations. This trio is a personal representation of those swells.
