Puppet Play in Java

By Betty Beath

Regular price $40.00 Sale

String Orchestra, c.3'00
Puppet Play in Java was inspired by the music of Sunda, West Java and of the street musicians heard playing in Bandung and Jogjakarta. Street musicians singing as they played and sometimes spontaneously move into dance, all being part of the colourful and relaxed life of Java. The composer sought to capture some of that relaxed and playful spirit in this work.

Sacred Prelude, Op.15

By Jonathan David Little

Regular price $55.00 Sale

Stile Antico,  for string orchestra. A natural rubato is felt throughout this haunting, single-movement work for string orchestra. The sound is reminiscent of that of ancient church music. Written in the stile antico, it opens with a “Plainsong”, then comes the main central “Anthem”. There is a brief reprise of the opening theme, before the work closes with a more emphatic “Fantasia” (where the sense of rubato becomes almost improvisatory). The work, as a whole, may be said to comprise a poignant “prayer” for strings. c.11'00
Arranged by Anthony Weeden in collaboration with the composer.

Simple Gifts

By Houston Dunleavy

Regular price $45.00 Sale

SATB choir, Oboe, Trumpet and Strings, c.6'00

Shaker dance song by Elder Joseph Brackett, composed at Alfred, Maine in 1848

Complete words to the original song:                  

Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free,

'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,

And when we find ourselves in the place just right,

'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

When true simplicity is gain'd

To bow and to bend we shan't be asham'd,

To turn, turn will be our delight

'Till by turning, turning we come round right.

By Hugh Dixon

Regular price $80.00 Sale

Flute and string orchestra. c.10'30.
Instrumentation flute 4 violin I, 4 violin II, 3 viola, 3 cello and 1 double bass..
Inspired by the poem "The Seagull" by Mary Howitt (1799-1888) the orchestral parts describe the constant rocking motion of the waves with the seagull, at first at rest "in calm repose on the breast of the heaving sea." Finally, the music comes to a contrapuntal coda passage over which the flute and solo violin share a duet and then the whole piece subsides to a gentle ending with the flute "rocking on the gentle waves"..
