new work by keith dippre
We are adding a third piece by Keith to the two already published - Light, SATB and piano and the exciting Mojave Cross, Desert Voices for SATB with piano, timpani, and auxiliary percussion which Keith tells me may be performed without the percussion instruments. The new work is The Fifth Season for SATB and piano. It is the concluding choral fifth piece with well known words from Ecclesiastes 3 v. 1-13 'a time to--' and is preceded by four instrumental pieces. It is characterized by meter changes, edgy harmonies a robust piano part and the composer's favoured 'move along' tempi.
