Composer / Arranger Details:

Emma Lou Diemer  (born 1927) is a native of Kansas City, MO. She studied piano from an early age, wrote piano pieces as a child, and began to play organ in church at age 13. She decided to be a composer about that time with a strong interest also in piano, taking lessons at the K.C. Conservatory (with Wiktor Labunski).

Dr. Diemer was instrumental in founding the electronic/computer music centre at UCSB and helped to develop the Ph.D./DMA degrees in composition as well as other aspects of the curriculum. She has written many works of varying difficulty, from hymns and songs to concertos and symphonies. Diemer's many awards include a Louisville Student Award (for a suite for orchestra), the Arthur Benjamin Award for "Quiet Music" from Eastman (for the second movement of her 2nd symphony/dissertation), and a Kennedy Center Friedheim Award in Orchestral Music for her 1991 piano concerto.

She was composer-in-residence with the Santa Barbara Symphony from 1990-92, and the 1995 Composer of the Year of the American Guild of Organists.

Percussion begins in 4/4 with vigor. Similar rhythms in voices (very elementary voices). Repetitious. Finnie: Alternates between 3/2 and 4/4 in he second of the piece.
