Programme Note:
This work is like a song in the sense that there is a lead melodic line accompanied by a rhythmicized chordal structure. The first drafts of Song of the Soul were scored for a capella vocal quartet. In this context one singer had the lead while the other three acted as the accompanying instrumental band. When considering the musical material, however, I realized that much of it was suitable for mallet instruments. In this new context the vibraphone plays the lead while the marimba fills the role of the instrumental ensemble. Song of the Soul is inspired by a poem by Khalil Gibran.
