Dauntless


Douglas, Paul, From the Top Music

Paul writes: This work was inspired by the orchestra and organ music I was fortunate to hear performed live during my undergraduate years at Westminster Choir College. I had written the first nine measures many years ago, modeling them after the opening of Louis Vierne’s Final to his Organ Symphony #1. This is a piece of “absolute” music, meaning there are no lyrics or story attached to it; it exists for its own sake as a piece of pure music. It is composed in the sonata-allegro form.

Festive Dance on Holy Manna


Hymn Tune, arr. Meyer, Kurt, From the Top Music

Holy Manna is one of the hymn tunes published by William Moore in a shape-note tunebook in the early 19th century and is one of the earliest forms of American 'folk' hymns. The original lyrics for this hymn were "Brethren, We Have Met Together". Kurt has taken this simple, almost plaintive pentatonic melody and created an amazing arrangement with rhythm, techniques, and texture without sacrificing the simplicity.

Sambello


Lyons, Danny, From the Top Music

Danny Lyons writes: Just as Sambello the title is a combination of two words – Samba and handbell - "Sambello" the piece is a combination of two time signatures: 7/8 and 4/4. The piece is not a samba, but that word kept coming to mind because I could envision two dancers working their way through it. The piece is dance music in a way because of the regularity of the change from 7/8 to 4/4; it is something you can count on and can be followed along with dance steps even in 7/8 time.

Si Tuvieras Fe (If You Only Have Faith)


Latin American Folk Song, arr. Seemann, Brian, From the Top Music

This lively Latin folk tune contains lyrics based on the text in Matthew 17:20: "If you have faith as small as a mustard seed … nothing will be impossible for you."

The rhythm is strong and central to this tune and is reflective of many of the rhythms with African origins which became central to the Caribbean and South American "Latin" musical style. The melody and harmonies are engaging and filled with energy.
