2. Lord Jesus walking on the Sea (St. Matthew xxiv, 23, 24, 25)

Of this movemenet, Weinberger writes: In St. Matthew xiv, we read of a nocturnal tempest tossing a boat in which the disciples are sailing. "Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea."

The "Second Poem" gives us a complete change of scene and mood. It is the most dramatic of the group, and begins with a violent storm at sea. The music crashes and thunders, using a heavy pedal, 32nd notes runs played on the Solo Tuba, massive, "crossed hands" chords, culminating with a thunderous "wave" on the 32' Bombarde.

Then, it just stops...

The final section is a complete change. From fear to calm - from chaos to serenity...

I had to do a tremendous amount of "figuring out" to make this work, but I think it really came off well.

After listening to the end of this movement, I hope to be proclaimed as an "honorary theater organist"! Give a listen, and you'll see WHY I say that!

I can only say that it's a pity that there wasn't a "C-sharp" available for the last chord.

You'll have to listen to the end to see what I mean.
