Garrop's brass quintet describes the daily journey of the sun god, Helios, as he crosses the sky, then sleeps through the night in a golden boat which carries him back to the beginning. As such, her soundscape "...begins with a fast and fiery sunrise and ends in a serene, sunset mood." Helios was commissioned by the Gaudete Brass Quintet, who also recorded the work on Chicago Moves (Cedille label). "Of all the music on the disc, this one is so well played, it stood out as one of my favorites." (quotes from John J. Puccio, Classical Candor) For advanced performers. Duration: 4'30".
