(2011) - College level - Duration 6:15 - This piece was written for Andrew Seigel and Ji Hyun Woo and is recorded by them on the Emeritus label Aurora CD. The two movements highlight the expressive capabilities of the clarinet and the strength and range of the organ in an unusual combination. While the clarinet sings over the organ throughout most of Meditation, both instruments emanate a quiet intensity through the movement. Not surprisingly, both instruments are much more extroverted in the Festive Celebration. The clarinet conjures its heritage as a woodwind cousin to the trumpet through its many fanfares, and the organ dazzles with its range and resonant power.
