General' Garden, The by Peter Mcnamara

Score and part

Baritone and piano c.10.00'
The lyrics are taken from extracts of letters from General Sir John Monash written while he was on active duty at Gallipoli. After such intensive fighting his letters home were filled with longing for his former life and in particular his garden. A solemn and introspective song in 'lieder' tradition but includes more modern techniques.  Winner of the Gallipoli Songs Prize in 2015.  Composed 2014.

Bloodying of Innocence, The by Brennan Keats

Score and parts

For flute quartet.  c.6'30
This work is intended to be performed in those concerts or broadcasts that may transpire before two National days of importance, namely ANZAC Day and Armistice Day, also known as Remembrance Day.
The work portrays the innocence the young men and women took with them to war and which was truly bloodied and destroyed by the process of conflict. The centrepiece of the composition is the sounding of the Last Post by the bass flute with echoes by the flute and alto flute both underpinned by ominous beats from the contra bass flute. Composed 2015.

Movement by Horace Keats


Vocal and Chamber Music by Horace Keats (1895-1945), performed by soprano Louise Page and pianist Phillipa Candy and The Linden String Quartet formed with artists from the Sydney Symphony Orchestra - Marina Marsden and Emily Long (violins), Justine Marsden (viola), Elizabeth Neville (cello), as well as Janet Web (flute).
This CD of Keats' music presents the opportunity to demonstrate that his compositions extended beyond songs written for voice and piano, for which he is so well known, and that his musical output is far broader than people know and so is worthy of attention.
The performance by these outstanding musicians displays colour and sensitivity with rare musical intuition in interpreting this fine composer.

Starseed by Phillip Wilcher


Solo piano, c.4'05
There's a window in the sky /Where a guardian light appears, /As a breeze draws back /Each curtain of cloud/ The light allays all fears,/And through the window /The reflection seen /Of the connection we all share, /Is of a love everlasting,/Life's eternal dream ... /The journey of a starseed/From here to there.

Composed 2015.

Craters of Rhea - Double Bass by Keyna Wilkins


Double bass and loop pedal, c.8'00. Level of difficulty:  A.Mus.  

The composer imagines the craggy and sharp but beautiful shapes of the ice craters of Rhea (second largest of Saturn's moons) and interprets them musically in the opening motifs. The loop pedal for electric double bass is explored with use of a repeated and recorded 5 bar theme over which there is some notated lines and some structured improvisation, giving the work an optimistic resolution.   Composed 2013, revised 2015
