Notes from the composer:

The Desert and the Parched Land was originally written as a soprano solo in my Mass To Hope! composed in 1979 and premiered in 1980 at the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul in Providence, Rhode Island. It replaced the usual Scriptural reading in the Mass ritual. When I recorded To Hope! at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., I improvised a short piano interlude followed by the soprano returning to sing the original theme. I have since discovered that many other musicians love to play this melody and follow it with an improvised solo. Derek Snyder, in arranging for cello ensemble, has added some new material to my original composition derived from an improvisation by Michael Moore, the bass player in my quartet. - DAVE BRUBECK

* For six or seven cellos. As recorded by the Yale Cellos.
