Program Note

These Twelve Meditations could be also described as preludes, for most are instrumental in conception, and several employ a keyboard style that recalls earlier eras. Each considers a single idea or clearly audible musical process. Each presents a particular musical situation: a tone or chord; a mode; a technical situation like crossed hands (No. 10); a keyboard style (No. 8). Nos. 7 and 9 treat the same melodic idea in very different settings. Most are one-part forms lasting at most three or four minutes. Quiet usually prevails. I hope the collection provides a moment in practice, performance or worship that is relaxed, sonorous and meditative—in musical sense, at least.
