Orison on "Ubi caritas" - (2021)
for Steve Park, St. Francis de Sales, Sherman Oaks
This is a little meditation on the chant, "Ubi caritas,: which Steve Park wrote to me as one of his favorite melodies. He has served as organist at St. Francis de Sales for many years, including during the time when my brother had directed the choral music so many years ago. He still plays to this day, in 2021. A motet-like texture is chosen to highlight and then embed the theme into a small work for organ.
