Been away for a while trying to do more scholarly writing (i.e. dissertation) because I SUCK AT IT! Meanwhile, here's the music part of my dissertation, Movt. 1 of Joshua. Deuteronomy 34 (NIV) 7 Moses was a hundred and twenty years old when he died, yet his eyes were not weak nor his strength gone. 8 The Israelites grieved for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days, until the time of weeping and mourning was over. 9 Now Joshua son of Nun was filled with the spirit of wisdom because Moses had laid his hands on him. So, the Israelites listened to him and did what the LORD had commanded Moses. Joshua 1 (NIV) 10 So Joshua ordered the officers of the people: 11 “Go through the camp and tell the people, ‘Get your provisions ready. Three days from now you will cross the Jordan here to go in and take possession of the land the LORD your God is giving you for your own.’” The piece opens with a sense of tranquility as Moses sees the Promised Land but dies and is laid to rest. Joshua and Caleb become the leaders of the Israelites. The music will then develop in 6/8 as Joshua leads the Israelites into the Promised Land. Caleb and Joshua will converse back and forth as they travel.
