For wind ensembles and concertos, please use one player per part. For symphonies and concert pieces, more players may be used as desired. David’s full statement.
The tune which inspired the Prelude on a Gregorian Tune originated in the Liber Usualis, the traditional book of words and music for Christian services. The music is from a short Responsory.
Christ, Son of the Living God, Have mercy on us
Prelude on a Gregorian Tune evokes the ancient Christian mysticism as found in the music and words of Gregorian chants. This mild and harmonious work is a non-sectarian piece, which emerges as a small ritornello form, ababa.
