There’s a Land Beyond the River, solo violin, 3′. In memory of Sidney Grolnic. Premiered 14 April 2021, Joseph Kauffman, violin, George Washington Memorial Park, Plymouth Meeting, PA.

For the story behind this work, please see There’s a Land Beyond the River, clarinet and piano.

The text of the song behind what the violin is playing:

There’s a land beyond the river
That we call the sweet forever,
And that shore, we will reach it one day
If we travel onward faithfully.

One by one we will gain the portals,
There to dwell with the immortals.
Can you hear them calling to us,
As they ring the golden bells for you and me.

Can you hear? The bells are ringing!
Can you hear their majesty?
’Tis the Hallelujah Glory, ’Tis the Hallelujah Jubilee!
In that sweet forever
Just beyond the river,
We will sing, “Hallelujah, Glory,”
As they ring the golden bells for you and me.
