From the Book of Hours. Du, nachbar Gott [Autograph manuscript of an early chamber version]

[ca. 1994].

Folio. Unbound. 9 pp. Notated in ink on 14-stave Passantino brand paper.

Scored for soprano, flute, percussion and piano. With text by the poet Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926). Several corrections in whiteout.

Together with a letter from the composer.

Commissioned by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and first performed in the orchestral version in 2002. The present version "was prepared for a reading session at the Marlboro Music Festival in 1994."

"Primosch's compositional voice encompasses a broad range of expressive types. His music can be intensely lyrical, as in the song cycle Holy the Firm (composed for Dawn Upshaw) or dazzlingly angular as in Secret Geometry for piano and electronic sound. His affection for jazz is reflected in works like the Piano Quintet, while his work as a church musician informs the many pieces in his catalog based on sacred songs or religious texts." - website of publisher Theodore Presser.
