In the Middle Ages, "Quintus" was the Latin term for the fifth church mode, what today we call the Lydian mode. The church-mode system at that time consisted of eight scales formed from tones of the C-Major scale but starting and ending on D, E, F or G. "Quintus" also refers to the interval of a perfect fifth. The piece uses both the idea of a perfect fifth and the Lydian mode as the basis for the composition. The intervals of perfect fifth are first stated in the introduction, which is then followed by the main theme in the Lydian mode on G. The "bridge" melody at m. 23 is something of an inversion of the main idea. A sostenuto section that is based on the idea of stacked fifths follows this. The tempo, however, should not slacken. The elongated rhythmic values will give the feeling of rhythmic repose. After a short pause, the main theme is stated again. Following a repeat of the "bridge" section, the composition ends with an aggressive coda. It may be appropriate for the coda to have a slight accelerando to the end if you feel that it is musically appropriate for your situation. As with all of my piece, the tempo is merely a suggestion and should be adjusted to fit the needs of your students. It is hoped that this piece can be used to teach younger students about intervals and the idea of different modes in the construction of music. It has been my pleasure to have the opportunity to write this piece. I hope you and your students enjoy it and find it useful for your program. -Larry Clark New York, NY 2002.

    Quintus is such an enjoyable piece. My students loved it. It's a great piece to develop sight-reading, dynamics, textures. Also, it sounds like its a lot harder than it accutally is, which impresses the audience. Highly recommended.
