This rag is a celebration of God's greatest gift,  the gift of salvation by undeserved grace.  Composed in 1993 originally as a saxophone quartet work,  this concert rag has three distinct strains reflecting as many ragtime styles:  The Introduction and "A" section is a melodic fanfare and thematic development;  the "B" section is more reflective and contemplative;  the TRIO or "C" section is an expression of pure ragtime joyousness.  The tenor saxophone is given the melody in the first part of this last section,  a fanfare is heard again in the break strain and the celebration concludes with the last repetitions.  Remember- ragtime is not jazz,  and should be played "straight",  with no swing feel,  but with plenty of pep and energy.  A smooth, "golden" classical tone is preferred. Score included.
