Program Notes

Pastorale is based on an anonymous sixteenth-century English counterpoint exercise contained in the Fitzwilliam Virginal Book (Vol. II: CXI). The original ten-measure three-voice exercise was found notated in unstemmed noteheads, without meter or key signature. A rhythmicized version of this exercise is presented at the beginning of Pastorale and serves as a “theme” for a series of informal variations, sometimes treating the treble line, sometimes the bass line, sometimes the harmony. The “theme” returns at the end of the work with a superimposed descant line for the solo baritone horn.

The work was composed for baritone hornist Peter Sexauer in 1970.
