  • Notes & Instrumentation

    Liturgical Music is a work for large percussion ensemble in six movements. Biblical scripture or sacred readings inspire each movement. Despite the sacred implication, the work is intended for concert performance, although it could conceivably be performed within the service of a Christian church. Just what you have come to expect from Gillingham – masterful scoring, innovative use of percussion, memorable melodies & chromatic harmonic progressions.

    Program Notes
    Liturgical Music is a work for large percussion ensemble in six movements. Biblical scripture or sacred readings inspire each movement. Despite the sacred implication, the work is intended for concert performance, although it could conceivably be performed within the service of a Christian church. The movements are organized as follows with corresponding scripture or readings: I. Processional
    Sing praises to the Lord, who dwells in Zion! (Psalm 9:11)

    II. Psalm 47
    Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy! (Psalm 47:1)

    III. Prayer (In Memoriam: Barry Larkin)
    The souls of the righteous are in the hand of God and no torment will ever touch them. (Wisdom of Solomon 3:1-9)

    IV. Dance
    Praise him with timbrel and dance. (Psalm 150:4)

    V. Benediction
    Lead me, Lord, Lead me in thy righteousness; Make thy way plain before my face. (Psalm 5:8)

    VI. Recessional
    O for a thousand Tongues to sing, My great Redeemer’s praise, The glories of my God and King, The triumphs of his grace. (Charles Wesley, 1739)
