Composer: Paul Somers
Format: Score and Parts
Instrumentation: Clarinet, Viola, Piano

On a mission to develop an example of minimalism, Somers found himself wandering into an imagining of a particular Biblical scene, that of Jacob wrestling with a stranger. This brought to mind a hymn tune adaptation by an old friend, which in turn became the underpinnings for Somers' own Meditation. The appropriate verses from the Book of Genesis are noted within the score as the tale unfolds.
