Happy Occasion Overture (wind ensemble)

By Miriam Hyde

Regular price $168.00 Sale

For Wind Ensemble, c.4'30

Happy Occasion Overture was conceived in a spirit of recreation and aims at giving all the players a "say", while avoiding unnecessary complexities of technique and ensemble. 
It is built on three subjects; the first a spirited call to attention, the second a more expressive oboe phrase, and the third a bolder, striding tune given principally to the strings, in a more serious minor mood.  This returns jubilantly, towards the end, in the tonic major, and is rounded-off by a last reference to the rhythmic beat of the opening theme, broadening to the final cadence.

Arranged by Paul De Cinque (UWA)

Composed 1956-57

    Mission of Juan Bautista de Morales, The

    By Tony Wheeler

    Regular price $57.00 Sale

    For flute, zhongruan -中阮, percussion and strings

    Juan Bautista de Morales (1597-1664) was a Spanish missionary who entered the Dominican order in 1614.  In 1620 he went to Manilla where he learned the Amoy dialect in order to minister to the Chinese community in the Philippines.  After two unsuccessful attempts to work in Cambodia, he went to China’s Fujian Province, where a Dominican mission had been established in 1631. 
    Morales spent most of his time in China in the province of Fujian, parts of this piece employ some melodic phrases from an ancient genre of traditional Chinese music originating from this region, known as Nanyin 南音 (southern sound).  The phrases are played by the soloists, and by the strings.
    Commissioned by Karen Carey on behalf of Santa Sabina College for the celebration of the 800th anniversary of the Dominican Order.
    Composed 2016.

The Flute, Oboe and Bassoon express the movement of birds, fish, crabs and people as they gather food in their bountiful habitat.
