Hinode (1998)

for organ solo

Duration: 4'

Score available from the composer

In the Spring of 1998, friend and fellow composer Ruben Salazar commissioned me and several others to write new organ works to be premiered as part of his wedding ceremony in Japan.  My work, Hinode, (Japanese for “sunrise”) begins low and quiet, and slowly blossoms to a bright and shimmering texture, reflecting the feeling of a brand new day full of promise and new possibilities.
