Of the Father's Love Begotten for Piano and Strings
as a special meditative prelude during the Christmas season, this
arrangement of the ancient chant tune opens with a transparent texture
that climaxes with "leggiero" passage work in the strings before ending
calmly and sparsely. All parts are of moderate difficulty, presenting a
wonderful opportunity to feature your pianist, and the string parts are
equally effective when performed by a quintet, one on a part. Includes score and parts (one per instrument).

These three preludes retain the primitive, open harmonies of early American hymnody. The first is a quiet, worshipful introit; the second, a somber depiction of Christ's sacrifice; and the last prelude imitates the joyous strumming of banjos and energy of fiddles. Includes parts for violin, piano, and cello.
