Meditation and Exultation (2012)

Oboist Alicia Cordoba Tait

Patricia Morehead’s newest work is a piece for oboe d’amore solo dedicated to Alicia Cordoba Tait in honor of the Virgin Mary.

About Meditation and Exultation – my oboist friend Alicia Cordoba Tait is a Marian scholar at Benedictine University. We are long-time friends (she’s a fine oboist, of course). I am lucky that I went to St. Mary’s Academy for two years to keep me from going astray in high school! I am a mystic who loves the traditional mass in Latin (don’t need to understand) with Gregorian chant.
