  • Illusions – Flute Choir

    Illusions make us think we are seeing something we’re not, a deception, which is quite magical; and this piece is based on magic.

    The first movement, Wild Card, depicts the journey to find one’s own way in life. The individual parts go this way and that, sometimes at peace with decisions made and sometimes filled with the unease that comes with fear of the unknown.

    A wizard can be someone clever and skilled, as a computer wizard, and can also be synonymous for obsessions, including bewitchment and enchantment. Wizardz, the second movement, gives every instrument its own voice within the ensemble, sometimes clever and skilled, sometimes filled with enchantment and motivation with a little sorcery for good measure. Juggling, the third movement, sonically juggles the sound back and forth, up and down among the players, trying to keep all the balls in the air at the same time.

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

    Composer: Anne McGinty
    Instrumentation: Piccolo, 4 C Flutes, Alto Flute & Bass Flute
    Duration/# of Pages: ca. 10:15 / 74 pages, 8.5″ x 11″

  • John Come Kiss Me Now – Brass Quintet

    This piece is No. X from the Fitzwilliam Virginal Book. Byrd was the leading English composer of his generation, and was a protegé of Thomas Tallis. This arrangement by Bill Reichenbach remains faithful to Byrd’s original music, and the brass quintet instrumentation adds color and dynamic shading to intensify the expressive qualities of the music. This piece was made popular to instrumentalists in Gordon Jacob’s William Byrd Suite for band.

    An optional ending has been added if you want to stop where the band piece ends. There is also an option to continue, and it gets quite note-y, but provides an excellent opportunity to showcase technical and rhythmical facility. Slurs have been added to facilitate some of the runs, and may be ignored if so desired. Additional dynamics may be added according to the rise and fall of the melodic lines.

    Composer: Bill Reichenbach
    Instrumentation: 2 Bb Trumpets, F Horn, Trombone, Bass Trombone/Tuba
    Duration/# of Pages: ca. 2:00 or 4:25 / 27 pages, 8.5″ x 11″
