This cycle of three hymn tune improvisations features tunes associated with the American Thanksgiving holiday. The settings work well as a cycle played together or stand on their own.
For the Beauty of the Earth
A gentle, lyrical, and rhapsodic setting with subtle modifications to the tune.
Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee
HYMN TO JOY
An exuberant, sprightly scherzo.
We Gather Together
Envisioned as a gentle but lilting waltz.
