  • Tuba & 12 – Mixed Large Ensemble

    Tuba & 12 was inspired by a Bedouin proverb that states: “While the words are yet unspoken, you are master of them; when once they are spoken, they are master of you.”

    Proverbs, in general, state a general piece of advice. This piece assumed that words were spoken, resulting in tension and an apology. Relationships, the first movement, has brass vs. woodwinds, tonality vs. dissonance, duples vs. triplets, et al. as well as the synergy and cooperation among all. Unspoken Words is the second movement and the dissonant opening theme in the piccolo and flute is presented three times. The third movement is Resolution. Over a constant low pedal G, the horn obstinato adds tranquility as all the themes from the first two movements return in fragmented form, before all is finally resolved.

    Although tuba has top billing in the title, each instrument is equally important.

    The sample score shows the first page of each of the three movements. At this time there is no recording available.

  • Twas in the Moon of Wintertime – Brass Octet

    This, the first Canadian Christmas carol, was originally written in the Huron language using the melody of a 16th century French carol, Une Jeune Pucelle. This arrangement is as expressive as the story it depicts and the plaintive melody is elegantly scored and always full of promise.

    The lyrics are:

    Twas in the moon of wintertime when all the birds had fled,
    That mighty Gitchi Manitou sent angel choirs instead.
    Before their light the stars grew dim,
    And wand'ring hunters heard the hymn:
    Jesus your king is born, Jesus is born.
    In excelsis gloria!

    Marissa Benedict, Larry Hall – Trumpet
    Andy Pelletier, Bruce Hudson – Horn
