Lament and Tribal Dances

By Michael Sweeney

http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/lament-and-tribal-dances-sheet-music/3857141

Concert Band - Grade 3
Composed by Michael Sweeney. MusicWorks Grade 3. Score and parts. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.4001926).

Item Number: HL.4001926

Commissioned by the Iowa Bandmasters Association, this dynamic new work from Michael Sweeney is written in three contrasting sections. The opening “Lament” features a plaintive F Horn melody and expansive harmonies. The mood then shifts to an intensely rhythmic dance using an unusual modal scale. In the final section, the flutes switch to recorders and a driving percussion ostinato figure helps propel this magnificent piece to a dramatic ending. A rewarding and satisfying work from one of today's best composers for young bands.

    I though when it gets faster and more intense, it sounds really cool. Bravo, Sweeney!

    I think this is an absolutely wonderful and beautiful piece of music. Repetitive it may be, but it all sounds gorgeous in the full.
