Morning Meditation

The Caprice en forme d'arabesques ("Caprice in the Form of Arabesques") was composed in Morocco while Dillon Ford was on the faculty of the American School of Tangier (1982-83). This six-movement suite tells no specific story. Each movement, rather, represents some impression of a particular person, place, or thing encountered either in everyday reality or in the realm of imagination.

The Morning Meditation is a mystically rhapsodic work in which melodic arabesques rise and fall like delicately carved arches supported on the slender piers of a repeating drone bass.
