"Joy is the gigantic secret of the Christian!” Gilbert Keith Chesterton
CRUX FIDELIS for alto saxophone and piano is another version of same title as concerto for alto saxophone and string orchestra (or string quintet). The work is in two movements. The initial Moderato is an expressive set of variations on Good Friday's gregorian antiphon Crux fidelis beginning of the Pange Lingua. "Faithful Cross, among all, You are the noblest tree, No forest produces anything similar, In leaf, flower, or seed." The second and conclusive Allegro moderato is a joyous rondo-sonata on two free themes.
Other version : CRUX FIDELIS Concerto for alto saxophone and string orchestra (ad libitum string quintet) available at U.M.P.
