      Assurance - Robert Thurston


The melodic 5-note title phrase of the classic hymn¬†Blessed Assurance¬†provides the starting point for Robert Thurston‚Äôs exuberantly creative riff on a beloved American religious tune. Thurston imbues the rhythms, harmonies, and textures of¬†Assurance¬†with a pop sensibility, while observing traditional formal structures‚ÄĒthere‚Äôs even a 4-part fugue to set up the final third of the piece! Assurance isn‚Äôt an arrangement‚ÄĒit‚Äôs a highly original, joyous, and fervently spirited musical tour de force.
