Works for STRING QUARTET

My smallest-scale pieces for conventional string quartet instrumentation (2 violins, viola & cello).

DESCENDENTEM sicut columbam

00:00 / 02:44

Notes: a nearly straight arrangement of my choral setting of Matthew 3:16-17, composed to span a range of choral orchestration - beginning and ending with simple homophony, with a section of solo, duo and trio voices building to the centrepiece of dramatic polyphony.

concordance

00:00 / 02:28

Notes: more determinedly Classical in nature; a whimsical flimsy of a piece suited for dancing and masquerades.

st clement's isle

00:00 / 02:14

Notes: another string arrangement of an SATB choral piece, and the first full work I ever recorded.

FOLLOWED BY SILENCE

00:00 / 02:17

Notes: originally an orchestral piece called "Excessive Dragons", a title that caused more questions than any other part of my repertoire.
