This powerful and dramatic piece for oboe and organ was written in 1991 and prepared for publication following its premiere recording by Grace Tice and Daryl Robinson on A Love So Fierce: Organ Works of David Ashley White (Acis). Headed with the verse from Psalm 88, "O Lord, my day and night I cry for you," the music explores the dark moods of lamentation that appear in the psalm’s verses. Beginning with an imploring and seeking tone, the music builds in several stages from desolate quiet to an intense climax and coda. Intended for professional players, it would be a deeply memorable selection for a Lenten service or as a recital offering in any season. Both instruments are used very creatively throughout--White began his own musical career as an oboist, and his decades of involvement with church music have resulted in numerous pieces for organ.
