…given for a time (euphonium & organ)

…given for a time was commissioned by the Fondazione Donne in Musica, for the Grand Jubilee for the Year 2000 in Rome, Italy. It was premiered on November 7, 2000 at the Basilica di Santa Maria Sopra Minerva in Rome.

…given for a time also exists in versions for trombone and piano, and for trombone and organ.

The work was inspired by the writings of the 14th-century English mystic Julian (Juliana) of Norwich, who wrote eloquently about the love of God and the equality of God’s feminine and masculine nature.

“I saw no difference between God and our substance, but, as it were, all God;
and still my understanding accepted that our substance is in God…”
“…when the shewing, which is given for a time, is passed and hid,
then faith keepeth it…”
Julian (Juliana) of Norwich (14th c.)
