“Hymn” was originally written as a 1’30” MIDI string video project for the Sony Corp. in 1980. This latest 2014 version represents a total re-write conceived for live performance. An earlier previous edit was performed by the Rowan University Strings directed by Bert Greenspan, who was also a former influential teacher.

I began private studies with Vaclav Nelhybel in 1965 and we maintained communication for some years during which time he became my mentor. He put me in touch with two publishers – Joe Boonin of Joseph Boonin, Inc and Franko Columbo of E.C. Kerby, Ltd. Mr. Boonin published “Sound Dramas” and “Six Poetic Songs” while “Chorale Dramatique” was published by E.C. Kerby.

An arrangement for a Bell of Pennsylvania project “A Day in the Life of Pennsylvania” celebrating America’s bicentennial in which amateur photographs solicited from all over Pennsylvania were synced to the score and broadcast over public TV as well as extensive “in-house” use. The 5’ 30” arrangement is scored for Orchestra, Children’s Chorus, SATB Chorus, Tenor Voice, Tenor Sax and Jazz Combo. There is a 30 second unaccompanied SATB section that had to be cut from the final recording to maintain the allotted time frame of 5:00’. The arrangement was recorded at West Chester, PA University’s sound studio “live” rather then layered, with only the vocals and tenor sax solo dubbed in at a later dubbing session.
