Written at the request of David Daws for his solo album The Sound of David Daws, this meditation for cornet and brass band uses the composer’s own song Before the cross (The Musical Salvationist, April 1965), the first lines of which are “Before the cross I stand in fear and wonder, and see that all my sins on Thee are laid”. The song was written at an early stage of the composer’s career, just before commencing study at The Royal Academy of Music, London. After a brief introduction the melody is heard twice, first played by the soloist, then on euphonium and flugel horn with the soloist adding ornate counterpoint before taking up the melody once again, this time leading to a quiet and reflective conclusion.
