Concerto for trumpet and orchestra, composed in 1993, revised 1998.
'Epiclesis’ means an invocation calling upon God’s name during any blessing or consecration.
Cast in a single 25-minute span, the work is a musical meditation on the mystery of the Eucharist and the idea of transformation of materials.
Scoring is for large orchestra; in the final section the soloist, now playing piccolo trumpet, is complemented by a pair of antiphonal trumpets. Composer’s note (E/G/F)
