Subtitle:  Reflections on Psalm 139

This original work by David R. Kent was inspired by Psalm 139 and is dedicated in the memory of Carol Haertel and her deep and abiding faith that never failed throughout her life journey. There are musical ‘nods’ to the beloved hymn, It Is Well With My Soul. The composer has shared his thought process as he composed this sensitive, inspired, and moving music. It is mostly Rung with a few Ring Touch and malleted notes.  There are lovely segues to key changes which include much expression plus time and tempo changes as well as a more energetic and rhythmic section. Opportunities abound to bring out inner voices and other beautiful accompanying lines.

Please read Randy’s Thought Process on page 2 of the score as he leads us all on his musical journey of faith and inspiration.
