List of Compositions
(B+ (D piano))
Cantata for Soprano, Baritone Soloists, Choir, Piano, Timpani and Side Drum
This is a major work, and minor
masterpiece, by a reclusive Scottish composer, now computer-set. It is intensely
dramatic in performance (c. 25 minutes). While most of the parts are not
particularly difficult, the pianist will need a robust technique. The modest
resources are deployed with superb effectiveness. The choral demands can be met
by any reasonably competent choir. There have been at least 4 performances in
Scotland in the last year or so (Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh).
Full details can be found in the whole preface.
No price is mentioned since any expression of interest will be dealt with according to circumstances. For the time being, in the interests of getting the work better known score and parts will be sold on a non-profit basis, and licences to print are, as usual, on offer.
