Montana Music

Fantasy on a Chorale Tune

for Violin and Viola
12 min.   •   

This Fantasy is based on the Bach Chorale melody “Lord God We Praise You”. The melody feels like old Gregorian Chant and it’s ancient forthright character paralleled my feeling for the Montana land. The land is powerful and not merely scenic or “nice”. The music is predominately vigorous, energetic, and edgy in character.
