For soprano, flute, clarinet, percussion, piano, viola, and cello. The mysterious moment when a young man chooses adult responsibilities over the security of childhood is what attracted me to the third chapter of the book of Samuel. The plain title describes finding all the notes, rhythms, and colors in the beautiful words of the King James Bible version of the story. The diction of this translation, remote from today's speech, supplied the ritualism necessary to travel to that remote place and time. — John Harbison
