Because I wait for thee - (2019)   

for organ


  A final phrase of a Psalm verse, 25:21 inspires this small meditation in 5/8 time. The whole verse reads:  "Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, because I wait for Thee." 


After the introductory solo line, a lightly decorated melody in the tenor voice is accompanied by a simple harmonic succession and tonic pedal.
