The River composed by Sylvia Rosin. For recorder consort and drum (SSAATBSb). Recorder Orchestra. Level 3 - Moderate. Score and reproducible parts. 12 pages. Published by Moeck Verlag (MM.MK03310).
The arrangement is based on the Native American song The River is Flowing, with the following words, 'The river is flowing, flowing and growing, The river is flowing back to the sea. Mother Earth, carry me, a child I will always be. Mother Earth, carry me back to the sea. The Indian melody travels from one voice to the next and has the structure of a round. Counter voices and accompanying voices are added. The piece gains more volume and intensity as parts are gradually added, and resembles a river growing larger and broader. Although parts for SSAATBSb are provided, the author suggests and gives permission to copy parts for an even larger orchestra. 12 page score and copyable parts.
