Refrains was composed in 1979 for the Percussion Ensemble of Lawrence University (Appleton, WI). The work is organized in two main sections, each modelled along the same pattern (or refrain): a loose, sparse, mysterious music becomes denser, louder, higher, and faster until it coalesces in a climactic outburst. After the second of these refrains, the music fades back to its sparse, mysterious origins in a reminiscence of the opening.
