Composer: Stephen Lias
“Mélange”, meaning a hodge-podge of different things, and “Neumes”, being medieval predecessors to our modern notation system, combined to create an innovative, four-movement work for flute choir: March (Scandicus), Slow (Climacus), Waltz (Torculus), and Very Fast (Porrectus). A wonderful new addition to a program!
Performance notes by the composer are included in the score.
Scored for 8-part flute choir: Piccolo, 4 C flutes, 2 alto flutes, and bass flute.
