new work : horn | gong | bass drum | choir [2015-25]

This work is part of the series for bassoon, horn, double bass, percussion and choir, but for this one, I only used the horn, with gong and bass drum and choir. Most of it takes an early motive, used in the first piece for chimes, but elongated and given to the bass drum, with the gong on the downbeat. The horn has a melody over this pattern. The rhythm of the bass drum motive is slightly modified for the second horn phrase before the choir enters. The work closes out with the horn making shorter statements of a variation of the themes.
