“Four Modal Hymns” is a piano compilation of tunes based on modal harmony. The first selection is Une Jeune Pucelle, a French carol from the 16th century. The text begins “ ’Twas in the moon of wintertime, when all the birds had fled.” The second tune is a melody from “Kentucky Harmony” from 1816 entitled O Holy City, Seen of John and speaks of the “city where Christ, the Lamb, doth reign.” The third melody is a Chinese folk melody Golden Breaks the Dawn where “comes the eastern sun like a man of brawn.” It is written in the pentatonic major scale. The last tune is a Native American melody titled Dakota titled Many and Great, O God, Are Thy Things and continues praising the various elements of nature. All the pieces are suitable for concert, recital, or religious services and are of medium difficulty. The audio clip is a computer rendering in Finale.
