Program Notes (Excepted from notes by the composer):
Chrysalis is the musical analogy of a caterpillar; its metamorphosis, and transformation to a butterfly. Within the story is another message: to become spiritually changed. The first movement, Caterpillar, introduces the “caterpillar theme” that will transform throughout the piece. The melody begins with clarity and is transformed into an awkward crawling caterpillar.

In movement two, the caterpillar enters a new and unknown phase of progression where it struggles to find its way. But in the darkness of the chrysalis, the caterpillar finds hope and the strength to become something more.

In the third movement, the Butterfly emerges and begins to fly. The “caterpillar theme” is transformed. The hymn, "All Creatures of our God and King" is quoted.
