Redemption of a Fallen Angel was commissioned by the Metropolitan Youth Symphony (Detroit, Michigan) conducted by Alan MacNair.The work is cast as a tone poem in which "good" ultimately triumphs over "evil". My lifelong interest in heavenly beings and life after death peeked my imagination and has rendered a rather sinister story about a angel who has succumbed to the Devil and has decided to reek havoc on the whole world. The work opens with this so-called "fallen angel" involved in sinister and wicked mischief represented by some angular and angry melodic lines stated by horns and trumpets with the strings playing a turbulent ostinato. His destruction, however, is interrupted by a choir of angels (oboe accompanied by strings) who pray for forgiveness and redemption. But the fallen angel is not to be swayed and leaves to continue his plight upon the world. More choirs of angels are then brought in to form a circle around the wicked angel. They sing their prayers and plead to God to forgive and redeem the fallen angel. The music of this section reflects angelic singing and prayerful melodic lines. The calmness is interrupted by the angry music of the beginning as the fallen angel tries, once again, to escape. But the redeeming power of God is not to be avoided and the choir of angels enfold the fallen angel and carry him upward to the heavens. The angelic theme returns in full splendor and the work drives to a glorious conclusion.-DRG.
