Christ the Lord Is Risen Today
Christ the Lord is Risen Today arranged in a lyrical style including splashes of J.S. Bach’s “Sleepers, Awake!” melody from Cantata No. 140. Ideal for intermediates and useful as an offertory selection for Easter services. Arranged by Jennifer Eklund.
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.
