The Creation Symphony

"The Creation" Symphony was written over the course of two years, and is based on the Creation story from the Book of Genesis in the Bible. Composed of 8 movements, the Overture begins with a 70 second long 'G' to represent the eternal existence of God. The movement proceeds to represent the voice of God as the main theme, as well as musically representing the characteristics of God throughout. The theme for the voice of God is represented in each day as well. The following seven movements represent each day of Creation as described in Genesis. A full commentary can be downloaded here.

Psalm 13

"Psalm 13", based on it's namesake, represents King David's struggle with feeling separated from God. David's cry out to God and ultimate resolution to trust Him are represented musically in three distinct sections. The piece ends with the theme for the voice of God from "The Creation" Symphony.

Psalm 13

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

1 How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever?
   How long will you hide your face from me?
2 How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
   and day after day have sorrow in my heart?
   How long will my enemy triumph over me?

3 Look on me and answer, Lord my God.
   Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death,
4 and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”
   and my foes will rejoice when I fall.

5 But I trust in your unfailing love;
   my heart rejoices in your salvation.
6 I will sing the Lord’s praise,
   for he has been good to me.

Psalm 57

"Psalm 57" is also based on it's namesake from the Bible. Originally, this piece was written for an orchestra and choir. While only the instrumental version is currently available, the dream of the full choir version still remains a dream. The Psalm was written by King David as he hid from King Saul in a cave...the fully anointed by God to be the true king. The melody of the work is based on the actual text of the Psalm, and represents the emotion and stress represented by the text.

Psalm 57

1 Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me,
   for in you I take refuge.
I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings
   until the disaster has passed.

2 I cry out to God Most High,
   to God, who vindicates me.
3 He sends from heaven and saves me,
   rebuking those who hotly pursue me—[c]
   God sends forth his love and his faithfulness.

4 I am in the midst of lions;
   I am forced to dwell among ravenous beasts—
men whose teeth are spears and arrows,
   whose tongues are sharp swords.

5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
   let your glory be over all the earth.

6 They spread a net for my feet—
   I was bowed down in distress.
They dug a pit in my path—
   but they have fallen into it themselves.

7 My heart, O God, is steadfast,
   my heart is steadfast;
   I will sing and make music.
8 Awake, my soul!
   Awake, harp and lyre!
   I will awaken the dawn.

9 I will praise you, Lord, among the nations;
   I will sing of you among the peoples.
10 For great is your love, reaching to the heavens;
   your faithfulness reaches to the skies.

11 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
   let your glory be over all the earth.
