Two Memorials (2018) clarinet, violin, cello + piano

Premiered – August 24, 2018

Sophie Huet, clarinet; Mia Nardi-Huffman, violin; Bridget Pasker, cello; Naomi Stine, piano

Program Note: Two Memorials is based on two tunes from the 1835 hymnal “Southern Harmony”. The sketches against these two hymn melodies, In Adam We Have All Been One + What Wondrous Love, were written shortly after two of my uncles’ deaths and then fully composed in August 2018 as a tribute.

The piece is in loving memory of
Roy Queen (1953-2015) + Terry Severhill (1950-2017).
