I. Sheaves

III. Solace

I wrote Gathering for the Gregynog Ensemble and this is a recording of their second performance.

The three movements of Gathering are ‘gathered’ together by means of an essential bass line that moves downward by half step with each new movement.

In the first movement, Sheaves, an insistent underlying tone anchors and eventually pulls down the lines rising above it.

The second movement, Melange, is full of rhythmic and metrical diversity, with outer sections alternating between an asymmetrical meter (12 345) and a chorale-style passage. A distinct middle section plays with the accent tension between 3/4 and 6/8 (12 34 56, vs. 123 456), sometimes one after the other, sometimes simultaneously.

The third movement, Solace, draws on traditional tonality, as a way to establish a sense of both unresolved longing and of remembrance.
