Lamentations (
1 Review)
Lamentations is suite of solos composed by Joanne Griffiths for intermediate players to explore time signature changes, comparisons between simple and compound time, minimalism, and mostly how to express mood and emotion. Breathe is a peaceful, calming minimalist piece pushing the boundaries of 3/4 time and crossing it with more than a suggestion of 6/8. For Carolyn is an uplifting piece with lilting, contrasting themes, in Rondo form. Finally, Sorrow is an expression of grief, with a “bell tolling” theme throughout. It is also minimalist, centered around A minor and changing from 3 to 4 beats in the bar and covering several octaves of the piano.

Brava! The suite is lovely throughout. I purchased it then immediately used the third piece for the entering and prayerful time before the prelude at a church service. I can't wait to give it to students who want a performance opportunity in their own worship services. The suite offers mature-sounding music that is accessible to maturing intermediates.
