BRIEF PROGRAMME NOTE

This work uses biblical texts to act as a framework for the three movements. They are Songs: ‘Take me with you and we will run together; bring me into your chamber, King’; Lamentations: ‘The joy of our heart is ceased; our dance is turned into mourning’; Praises: ‘Praise ye the Lord, Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him with the timbrel and
dance’
