A Note from the Composer

by Dave Brubeck

When I was writing “Two Churches”, I imagined that I was walking down a country road on a Sunday morning. I came to a crossroad where there was a lively, rollicking church on one corner, and a not so lively, decorous church on the¬†other. I stopped to listen. I could hear through the open church windows both choirs praising God, each in separate ways. Then, I imagined what it would sound like to have them join together rejoicing over the oneness of God. This piece, I think, would be fun for a madrigal group and a swing choir to perform together on a joint program.
