I’ve been playing the middle and lower parts of this music for years and always thinking the piece needed something more. Every now and then I’d play a few descant notes, but they never jelled and I would return to playing the piece without them.

Just before we recorded the CD, the famous Phyllis insisted that Sunlit needed a descant; in fact, she composed her own descant, sang it to my piano part, and sent me the recording.

Unfortunately, her notes, while beautiful, needed too many hands! But at least then I was motivated to figure out what the descant really should be. I actually wrote it down (I’m extremely lazy about writing down my music) so that I could remember the descant and practice it.

The title was also tricky; at one point I actually asked an audience for title suggestions. Finally I decided to keep it simple. Sunlit is also the title of a beautiful painting by Curtis Wilson Cost, and this music reminds me of that painting, so in the end it all flowed together.

Who would imagine that such a serene and simple piece would require so much thinking?!

Serene, simple, with the left hand playing both the bass and a treble descant while the right hand maintains a murmuring pattern of eighth notes. Suitable for use in church.
