The Kingdom of Anxiety

 

by Frederick Frahm. Concert work for organ solo (mostly manualiter) inspired by a text from W. H. Auden:

He is the Truth.
Seek him in the Kingdom of Anxiety:
you will come to a great city
that has expected your return for years.
the stanza from Chorus IV,  ‘For the Time Being’ (a Christmas Oratorio)
1941-1942, published 1944
