Programme Note:
"Prayer at Night" is based on verses from the Psalms of the Bible and is sung in the original Hebrew. Specific references in the text to the night as well as the overall mood of the music are intended to evoke feelings of contemplation, reflection, and self-examination. The saxophone embroiders upon the chordal harmonies of the choir in a free and improvisatory manner, providing a more personal contrast to the semi-ritualized nature of the sung material. Towards the end, the chorus breaks briefly from its pattern with a reiteration of the opening material only to return to the regularity of the rhythmic pulse.
