A heroic new organ solo by Samuel Adler, this substantial work was written for the dedication of the St. Cecilia organ at the Church of the Transfiguration in Orleans, MA. Adler has used the vivid fresco images of shofars in the church as inspiration for this work, which marks the opening of Rosh Hashana. The variety of trumpets and tubas on this organ also play a substantial part in the variety of sounds. An exciting fanfare and Allegro is followed by a beautiful chant-like section as contrast. A brilliant toccata on the opening material follows, bringing the work to a thunderous conclusion. This is a thrilling concert piece for a festive occasion.
