  • OMP009 Lance Eccles Purple Neon

    This languorous single movement in a gently pulsating 12/8-time has about it something of the majesty we associate with purple and something of the brashness of the bright city lights.  Sopranino dominates the first chorus, first treble the second, descant brings in a related theme and sopranino reclaims the lead for the final chorus.  The part-writing is good for all nine players and there are many nice touches - the skilful doublings here and there, the way the end of the first chorus is twice postponed, the driving duplet rhythms that back the melody when tenor and bass have it.  There are many good things for the large group to enjoy here.  The tempo mark says "Not fast" without specifying a metronome mark.  At dotted crotchet=84 it would take just over three minutes.

Orpheus Music's legacy of keeping Australian music relevant to the musical history of Australia and part of the recorder repertoire is something we are deeply passionate about. We would like to thank all the ensembles and recorder players around the world who took part in our celebration.
