Unlike the text of the implied psalm, dancing does not come after mourning in this piece. Instead, it is twined and untwined with mourning through a rondo form thatintimates how life cycles through these actions and how one is affected by the other. TheCuban clave rhythm frames the principal section. Woven into it from the mourningsections are the ornamentation of cantorial singing, the urgency of montuno, and improvisation by the players. In thefinal elegy, modality and meter warp into dissonance. Their chromatic and staggereddisentanglement finishes in a forthright return to dancing. (2009)
