Florence Price (1887-1953) was an American composer and an influential figure in Chicago's Black Renaissance. Born and raised in Arkansas, she enrolled at Boston's New England Conservatory at age 15 and showed incredible promise. She eventually moved to Chicago, where she wrote most of her works and became the first African-American woman to be programmed by a major orchestra.

In 2009, a substantial catalogue of her compositions was rescued from an abandoned Illinois house slated for demolition. Since then, her music has rapidly re-entered the wider classical canon. Beautifully romantic and infused with the rich cultural heritage of African-American idioms, her music represents an integral part of America's musical history and, as Alex Ross of the New Yorker asserts, ''deserves to be widely heard.''

Price's Adoration is a short, late work, originally written for organ to be used in church services. Its gorgeous, lyrical melodies and its approachability have made it popular in other arrangements, such as this one for string quartet and soloist. Solo parts are included for solo instruments in C, B-flat, E-flat, and F for maximum flexibility of instrumentation. Intermediate-advanced level, Grade 4.
