Today I present the next two Lenten Improvisations.  The first, Improvisation II, has similarities to Improvisation I, but fleshed out in a different manner.  The second, Improvisation III, is an inverted canon.  Of course, that’s a simplification of technique, but each is again an exploration of a single stop color that can be found on most instruments.  I continue to find the exploration of an individual stop to be challenging and the challenge is what makes it inviting!

  1. My wife, Mary, and I direct the Eucharistic Ministers to the Sick and Homebound ministry at our church, St. Ann, in Marietta, GA. We also visit
    6 care facilities within our parish boundaries. We have about 50 Ems who make these visits every Sunday. We would like very much to do a “Seven Last Words of Christ” service at those care facilities on Good Friday. Can you help us in any way, concerning your compositions and how we could inter-weave them with a commentary on each word? We’d read the commentary and pause for silent reflection while we played your compositions. What do you think? Your thoughts and comments would be greatly appreciated!
