Journey to Joy

Journey to Joy is a new work for unaccompanied viola solo. Beginning in A Minor, Journey to Joy opens with a dirge. The double stop melody has A as a pedal tone throughout. The second section is a waltz. The low register of the viola is brought to the forefront. The pulse picks up and uses more of the viola’s upper register. The work accelerates and finishes in C Major with a jig. Journey to Joy is available as a digital download.

For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven. Ecclestiastes 3:1
