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.
