"It is finished."

Solo Piano  |  12'

Program Note

"It is finished." was commissioned by Lipscomb University for pianist Jerome Reed. At the heart of the work lies the "Popule Meus" chant, prescribed for the traditional reproaches on Good Friday for the Christian Holy Triduum. "It is finished." therefore functions as a fantasia on this centuries-old tune, realized through the processes of deconstruction, reorganization, expansion, and allusion.
