Book of Hours

For Solo Piano

Commissioned by the Birchard Piano Studio in 2018 (at that time being only what is now called II. Lauds), this multi-movement work continues to grow. The music is heavily based on impressions of St. Gregory's Abbey, a monastery in Three Rivers, MI, where I first encountered the seven canonical hours of the day.

I. Matins - 4am

When you make your way to the chapel in the darkness of the morning.

II. Lauds - Daybreak

When the sun reveals the foggy world around you and transforms it into day.
