When Pastor David O. Maddox II was hired as the new pastor at Ascension Lutheran Church, Director of Music, Peter de Mets asked him what his favorite scripture was. David chose Luke 4:18-21:

18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.
21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

Peter once again called on his friend and collaborator, Mark A. Boyle to write a poetic translation of the scripture passage and he composed The Flame of the Creator.

The piece was premiered on Sunday May 5, 2013 by the choir of Ascension Lutheran Church, conducted by the composer.

Mark A. Boyle
