Lux et Lapis
for 2 trumpets and organ (2014)
Lux et Lapis. Light and Stone. I love taking long walks when I’m working on a piece and usually these walks are out in the woods. For this piece, however, I took every chance I could get to wander around two of the most magnificent cathedrals in the DC area: the National Cathedral and the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. I love the rush of feeling so tiny when entering these massive sanctuaries. With this work I have attempted to capture some of that awe-inspiring immensity.
Lux et Lapis was commissioned by Georgia trumpeters Dr. Adam Hayes and Dr. Joel Treybig.

"Lux et Lapis is a modern tour de force for two trumpets and organ. Alternately lovely and bold, this piece has become the anthem of our concert touring. Kevin exceeded our expectations on this commission."
