OMP013 Elizabeth Middleton Tout de Sweet
There's 7/8 in the first of the three movements of Elizabeth Middleton's Tout de Sweet. Comfortingly, the 7/8 is made of 4+3 in all parts throughout, until the very last bar. For eight bars everyone moves in step, this unanimity reappearing from time to time. Between whiles the rhythm is gradually fragmented with some amusing results. The second movement is a sarabande-like Andante in E minor, the last a swingy Vivace in G. The grading is Moderately Easy. The piece is good fun, sweet sounding, brief but bubbly.
