Passacaglia of Remembrance

Review:      The musical term passacaglia is from the Spanish pasar [to pass] and calle [street] and referred to street dancing in Spain in the 1600s. This form, whose structure typically features an ostinato bass line, developed into a more majestic dance in France, and has been used across all classical musical eras from Bach to the present.
This original work is written in 3/4 time, with the overall structure being symmetrical: simple beginning, progressive development reaching a musical peak, then returning to a simple ending. The opening ostinato bass line is the common thread throughout as additional musical lines are added and well-crafted variations are developed. Half note, quarter note, then eighth and sixteenth note passages and triplets in the treble bells add a sense of movement while the bass line remains constant. Dynamics gradually increase to ff, which remains until the complexity and dynamics decrease to the lovely but simple ending.
Simply stated: this is beautifully written music that will be wonderful in concert, worship (even in Lent), and in any memorial or remembrance event.
