Baritone-Bass

Ballad of the Canterbury Pilgrims, The

By Diana Blom

Regular price $30.00 Sale

For soprano, tenor, baritone and piano
Geoffrey Chaucer's classic set of stories, The Canterbury Tales is rich with characters from a range of England's social classes, each making a pilgrimage to Canterbury Cathedral to visit the shrine of Saint Tomas Becket.  These characters allow solos, duets and trios with the piano supporting each character's personality and plays with a descending eight bell peal of Canterbury Cathedral.  A ballad structure, the song focuses on five pilgrims - the knight, his squire, the nun, the cook and a good wife.  The language is a mixture of Middle English and Modern English.  Composed 2015

Bracefell's Story

By Michael Hannan

Regular price $28.00 Sale

Baritone and piano, c.17'00

Bracefell represents an early example of a white person who has come to terms with aboriginal life, and has received wisdom about the land.  The musical treatment contrasts the oppressive violence of his life in the penal colony (section I) with the freedom of his tribal existence (section II).  The third section of the work depicts the chaos resulting from the white intruders from the shipwreck and rescue of Eliza Frazer.  Their failure to conform to aboriginal ways in turn leads to their deaths or degradation.  
Composed 1990

    Dark, the Light, The

    By Diana Blom

    Regular price $28.00 Sale

    Low voice and piano  c.11'00
    A long song and short story.  Helen Garner is a very fine and evocative Australian short story writer and ‘The Dark, the Light’, from Postcards from Surfers (Penguin 1985).  Almost a music theatre work in miniature because of the different musical styles matching different text moods, the song can be sung by memory, but also with the score held as if reading the story to an audience.   Composed 1997
