Embers for Wind Ensemble. COMPLETE PARTS ONLY in regular letter size in one download (score is a separate download). Approx. 7 minutes duration. (Harp is optional and Alto Clarinet can be covered by Bass Clarinet with an optional part.) Originally written for clarinet ensemble, Embers was first performed in the Whitewater First United Methodist Church on December 4th, 2005 and was transcribed for band and orchestra shortly after its premiere. I was sitting peacefully with my mother enjoying the comfort of a warm beautiful fire when the opening melody (a sort of lullaby) surfaced in my mind. I named it Embers so that I would remember the glowing embers of the fire I enjoyed and the solitude my mother and I shared that night. The continuous rich low textures emulate the warmth of the fire until, for a moment, we are reminded of the fragile lullaby in high woodwinds. Embers reaches its climax in D-flat major as the last log is set on the fire and the flames gradually engulf the wood in a surge of warmth and beauty. The fire dies down to reveal the glowing embers of a different color, until the fire burns out completely.
