Using instrumentation found in most high school situations, "Lost Souls" is based on a simple original theme that goes through several transformations, moods and textures. Even though only 5 players are utilized, the piece is still very powerful.
Lost Souls was borne of a requirement for my doctoral comprehensive exams to write a 3-1/2 minute high school level percussion quintet using only instruments that would commonly be found in most high school situations. I started with a simple theme that would gradually go through many different transformations and texture changes. -ND.
