Program Notes

Beginning with percussion and dissonant chords, this setting of The First Noel quickly moves to a beautiful flute duet. With a freely adapted melody using rhythmic motives, tone clusters, and creative alterations of the main thematic material, this piece, although holiday oriented, will work well in many performance situations. Every section plays the melody at some point, and the modern compositional styles mixed with traditional chorale produce an engaging listening experience.
