Fantasy and Fugue on "My Lord, What a Mourning"
By Ralph Simpson

Written for the 75th Anniversary of the National Association of Negro Musicians, this work was premiered by Dr. Herman Taylor at that celebration. The fantasy opens with a bold call-response passage before leading into the melody of the famous spiritual. The fugue is a joyous expression of contrapuntal gymnastics ending with a triumphant flourish.
