Title: Ezekiel's Wheel: Piece for orchestra. (Original composition)
Author: Cornelius, John Lawrence
Advisor: Milburn, Ellsworth
Degree: Master of Music thesis
Abstract: Ezekiel's Wheel is a tone poem based on the experience of the prophet Ezekiel, as told in the Old Testament. The piece deals with the moment of his vision and the sensations during the course of his experience. The piece manifests itself through an opening chord which is a combination of major, minor and half-diminished triads which are stacked and inverted. Various bits of detail from the desert setting and the vision itself are interspersed through the winds, strings and percussion.
