For glockenspiel, marimba, vibraphone, harp, and piano. Oragnum, a greeting prelude for Paul Fromm, was one of a number of compositions commissioned y the University of Chicago to mark Fromm's seventy fifth birthday. I thought about Paul Fromm, his enthusiasm, encouragement and simplicity, and this quiet celebration in bell sounds was the result. The piece is ceremonial, heard as one simultaneous sculpture in space. All the sounds are choir sounds, and the chords, enclosed within the melody (hence the title Organum) are like smooth surfaces turned to the light – at least so it was meant. — John Harbison
