Composition

The second movement in the Divine Office work comes from the same place that the first movement did: a flute and organ work reworked for an evening prayer service around 2008.  These first two pieces were originally titled Vespers and Benediction.  Their use at the beginning of the Divine Office led me to the idea that they could be the beginning of something bigger.  And bigger for the organ more specifically.

Later on, when the movement arrives, there is one work written far earlier than the rest.  In the meantime though, this is the second of two works originally conceived as a specific set for a specific reason.  As a “prelude” and “postlude,” I like them quite a bit together even without the flute.
