Composed by Bruce Pearson


Canticle uses melodic motives from St. Francis of Assisi's hymn, "All Creatures of Our God and King." It opens with a festive fanfare and proceeds to a lively A section. The middle section uses the motif in a relative minor before concluding with a majestic celebratory ending. All instruments have fun, exciting and challenging parts. An ideal programming choice for concert, contest or festival performances.
