HUBERTUS: THE CLARION for FRENCH HORN and PIANO
(Alternate title: THE CLARION)
Playing time: Appx. 3:00
Services: St. Hubert’s Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas
Concert venue: Any (under the alternate title “The Clarion”)
The legend of St. Hubert tells of the time when he was hunting and came upon a stag with a crucifix between its antlers; this is a legend which Hubert shares with St. Eustace. The patron saint of hunters and the hunt, St. Hubert’s symbol of a stag with a cross is iconic to the famous liquor Jägermeister, which means “Hunt Master”. His feast day is November 3 and in older traditions it was observed as one of the earliest Christmas Feast Days in the season.
In this piece of music the sound of the hunt and the hunting horn are quite evident. And yet it is not the sound of a frenzied chase per se, but rather the sound of a beautiful, easy ride through the woods…and a spiritual awakening. Please note: Although this is scored for the horn, I have supplied an optional version for C instrument and in fact at its debut in California it was performed as a flute and piano piece.
The music may be used for church services ranging from St. Hubert’s Day itself in early November, through Thanksgiving and Christmas. As a concert work under the alternate title “The Clarion”, it is a piece well-suited for any time of year. May it be a delightful addition to any venue that you choose. God bless.
