(1) Hymn. (Half Note = ca90), p3-7
(2) Fuguing Tune. L'istesso tempo, p8-16
 D Apr 1962. "Commissioned by Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts"

 M (a) Ink score complete on 12 masters

 C HC re-used the theme at the beginning of the Hymn to open Hymn
and Fuguing Tune No. 16 (no. 921) and also for the last of the 26

in earlier years. He retained the customary two-part form, but in a
pattern more complex than before.
