TENOR HORN SOLO – HERE I AM, LORD
(Unity Series, 2011)
This work for smaller bands is a solo featuring the tenor horn (alto horn in the U.S.). It features Dan Schutte’s “I, the Lord of Sea and Sky” and many times through this piece, you hear the four-note motif that expresses the words “Here I Am, Lord,” which represents our willingness to obey God’s will and for us to go wherever He needs us to go. The inspiration for this piece lies in the sixth chapter of Isaiah and the eighth verse.
