New Horn Ensemble in OMS
“Once Upon a Time – A Lullaby for Horns” by Joel Ratner has been added to the IHS Online Music Sales
“Once Upon a Time” received its premier performance by the Suffolk County Horn Club at the SCMEA Day of Horn Festival (NY) in January 2014. The sweet, childlike melodic theme is supported with majestic harmonies and an interesting rhythmic structure, all exploiting the lyrical beauty of the horn. Equally appealing for a quartet or larger ensemble, the ballad offers optional harp/keyboard and chime accompaniment parts. The composition is an engaging addition to any concert or recital program.
2014 Composition Contest Announcement
Rules and procedures for the 2014 IHS Composition Contest have been announced by Dr. Randall Faust, contest coordinator, and can be see at http://www.hornsociety.org/about-the-ihs/composition-projects/composition-contest.
"Voices of the Sea" by Robert Ward added to OMS.
Voices of the Sea is a pair of works for horn and chorus, “Sound of the Sea” on a poem by Longfellow, and “All the Sea Sang” on a poem of Emma Lazarus. The first is meditative, based almost entirely on a 6-note scale, and the second is a high energy composition, ecstatic and upbeat at the end.
