Publisher Details :

In 1977 the OU Percussion Orchestra and Ensemble embarked on a project that developed into a national model for the encouragement and development of new music for percussion ensemble.  The OU Percussion Ensemble Commissioning Series regularly engages outstanding composers to write works for this medium.  The Commissioning Series is responsible for the creation of some of today`s staples in the percussion ensemble repertoire.

     In 1983 the University of Oklahoma funded the establishment of the OU Percussion Press, a non-profit extension of the percussion area. Through the Percussion Press, the commissioning series compositions plus other works expressly written for the OU Percussion Orchestra and Ensembles have been made available for purchase and performance by the world`s leading percussion ensembles. The Percussion Press` catalog numbers more than 50 works, all published in a non-profit venture as a service to the profession.

Programme Notes / Performance Details :

This dramatic work for brass quintet and percussion ensemble is sure to become a standard in the mixed chamber ensemble literature. Lamb masterfully manipulates the plethora of colors found in both the brass and percussion choirs to create a unique tapestry of sound. Although the work hints at serialism the thematic material is never lost to the listener as it shifts from brass to percussion and then back again. This is a challenging piece that would work well in a variety of performance venues. Note: Bb Trumpets double Flugelhorns in Bb Trombone and Tuba double Crytsal Glass percussion instrument
