Composition

The fifth movement of The Divine Office, Sext, is programmatic not in any specific way except in mood.  I wanted the piece to feel the tiredness of work while still moving on; in other words: perseverance.  One of the aspects found in monastic life is the constancy of work, though in my work at St. Paul of the Cross Monastery, it is certainly in a more modern idiom.  The beginning starts with a simple texture only to complicated by a more trio like texture, more work for the listener and performer alike.
