Item Number: CF.J687F

Written for CBDNA in 1975, Laude is Hanson's theme and variations on a chorale tune from his childhood memories, similar to his Dies Natalis. The opening theme is stated in unison, followed by seven variations leading up to, as Hanson put it, "a veritable avalanche of sound, the percussion innundating the hall with the sound and, literally, 'everything that has breath praising the Lord.'" The score from the original 1976 publications is now available.
