Program Notes

On the Morning of the 3rd Day was written in 1994. The work is an impression of the Old Testament passage from Exodus 19:16-19. 


“On the morning of the third day there was thunder and lightening,

With a thick cloud over the mountain, and a very loud trumpet blast.

Everyone in the camp trembled. Then Moses led the people out of the camp 

To meet with God, and they stood at the foot of the mountain. Mount Sinai

Was covered with smoke, because the Lord descended on it in fire.

The smoke billowed up from it like smoke from a furnace, the whole

Mountain trembled violently, and the sound of the trumpet grew 

louder and louder. Then Moses spoke and the voice of God answered him.”

Composed - 1994
