    I Wonder... Horn Lead

    Well, here's another in my series of efforts to keep pieces short (around 3 minutes or less). This one is "I Wonder as I Wander" (an Appalachian Carol) with Horn lead (I'll be performing it live at my church with the orchestra on CD).

    I'm a big fan of all the notes you wrote in this paricular piece. I'm also a big fan of Harp, Strings, and Trombone. Not a big fan of trumpet, but a tuba player shouldn't be. lol

    Very nice. No negative comments. Except one. WHY ISNT THERE MORE!!! Give me more. You write fantastically for harp. Beautiful little pling plings, if I may.

    Why isn't there more? Hehehe... that was the entire point of this exercise. I have a tendency to write for eight to ten minute pieces. However, performing them at my church is problematic. So, I've been working on getting my thoughts together in a much shorter frame of time.

    Very nice, very dramatic work. This certainly made its point in a short amount of time. Very well done and good use of the GPO.

    Very nice job on this carol, Foss; a lot of well-paced
    drama and impact; and while the rendering is quite
    good -- this will be stunning in live performance, I think.

    If you're able to record the church performance, I'm
    sure we'd all love to hear it!

    My best,
