Program Note

Glorious Sonnet was composed to commemorate the 125th anniversary of Kaisei Junior and Senior High Schools in Nagasaki, Japan. Based upon two hymns sung at school meetings and events, it features history-rich and inspirational lyrics offering great hope for the future.
There is no need for intense performance sound quality, even with fortes. Perform carefully with warm, soft character, richly expressive with vibrant rhythm. Rehearse this effect with voice or hymn-like lyrical quality.
