Program Notes Remembrance is a chorale prelude based on the hymn "It is Well with My Soul." The piece begins quietly with the evocative, mysterious sound of tenor and bass drum. A dialogue follows between the drums and small groups within the ensemble. A fluid prelude unfolds based on the hymn tune. The prelude is repeated, but this time the hymn tune is heard superimposed upon it. After a powerful cadence, the tenor and bass drum are heard again as they quietly disappear into gentle silence.
