Part/Version: Conductor's score and parts on hire
Forces or Category: Brass quintet & narrator
Details: for brass quintet and speaker
The work amalgamates two passionate poems of longing by the 17th-century libertine poet, The Earl of Rochester. The unusual metre of both poems and the dramatic stances of Rochester suggested to the composer the use of an actor speaking rather than a sung line. Brass instruments are well-suited to the text, given their ability to sound both overbearingly raunchy and exquisitely tender. The brass parts are written in a direct, bald style with many parallel intervals as in music contemporaneous with Rochester himself.
