Program Notes

Partita was originally composed for brass band in 1973. The work is in three movements, and uses material based on the 13th century plainsong "Dies Irae". The opening "Intrada" is sombre. The second movement is a "Chorale and Variations". The chorale melody follows the main outline of the plainsong. The five variatins are varied in mood and intensity. The final "March" is much happier in mood and has a lyrical tune in the middle, first heard on horns. However, references to the "Dies Irae" are still apparent and the final bars of the work contain a quote from the opening movement.
