Programme Note:
This Partita is based on the 1665 German hymn tune Lobe den Herren and contains a new harmonization of the chorale followed by six variations. Each variation represents a stanza of the hymn as it appears in The Book of Common Praise (revised 1938), being the Hymn Book of the Anglican Church of Canada, with the English text translation of Catherine Winkworth (1863) and others. The work represents the stanzas in the order # 1, 3, 4, 2, 5 and 6. The work was written in 1988 and dedicated to Canadian organist, Dianne Ferguson, who gave it its premiere at the dedication recital of the new Guilbault-Thérien organ in Rideau United Church in Ottawa, November 1989. My heartfelt thanks to Trent Worthington for preparing the digital score. Jacobus Kloppers Edmonton, Alberta 2013
