Afternoon Hymn - Flute Quartet
« on: August 27, 2020, 08:24:43 AM »
Hi all,

For all those following my progress .... and who already shared your encouraging/positive comments a big thank you.

The work 99% done.  I made a few additions/changes as per my discussion with my mentor.

I will share it with him one more time; although I don't expect much change at this point.

All comments most welcome.

On to the string quartet and another Coplandesque composition.

It has come together really well.  I suspect that, once musicians can safely play together again, you will have no trouble finding a group that wants to play it.

Patrick,

The first and second Flutes in my orchestra also play in a Flute Quartet.  ;D

I am pleased you enjoyed the progress in the work.

Mark,

That was really relaxing to listen to. Good use of the four Flute parts.
Not that Iíve listened to many Flute Quartets but this was really nice.  :)

Morten,

I just began to resurrect an old sketch ... for oboe, horn and cello.

I've titled it .... Evening Hymn.

I also have another old sketch .... which I might develop into ......Morning Hymn.

It might make a nice suite.

Thanks for the listen.  Pleased you enjoyed the work.

I rewrote the trio ... oboe, horn, and cello into another flute quartet.

So all three hymns will be for flute quartet.

I already began to compose another hymn. 

I might rearrange the titles ... so the Afternoon Hymn may become the Evening Hymn etc.

Mark,
 
As I've often said, your output astounds me.
 
Just don't confuse us into listening to the afternoon hymn in the morning, and so on ...
 
Cheers,
Jer

Lovely piece, Mark.  I agree, the harmonies seem well suited for this work.  The piece flows along softly and assuredly throughout.

Another fine addition to your musical output.
