This new piece, which I was commissioned to write in 1998, is based on the original hymn Silent Night. The work opens with the same gesture as the original hymn and the beginning section of the work is the development of that gesture. The second section takes the development a step further with the original carol serving as the fundamental basis and being sounded out very slowly over the course of the entire section being felt rather than heard. There is a return to the opening section before the piece concludes with a coda.   ASCAP
