Prayer of Saint Gregory by Alan Hovhaness 
Arranged for flute ensemble by Ray Pancost
Edited by Francine Ross Pancost
Includes score and parts

The Prayer of St. Gregory, a five-minute work originally for trumpet and strings, started as an intermezzo in Hovhaness' opera Etchmiadzin, composed in mid-1946, premiering in New York. This excerpt, described by Hovhaness as “a prayer in darkness”, was soon extracted as a separate work, and is one of his most popular short pieces. A calm work, in a moderate tempo, begins with chords, chorale – like, in Hovhaness' modal melodic and harmonic vein. The melody, in the flute choir arrangement, is moved from section to section throughout the flute choir, however, it is predominant in the low flutes. In order to sound balanced the low flute section needs to be larger than usual.
