On To the Field by Andrew Batterham

Score and parts

Wind band and pipe organ c.13'00.
“On to the field, our doom is sealed,
To conquer or be slaves;
The sun shall see our country free.
Or set upon our graves!”
These words were attributed to Timothy Hayes, a participant in the Eureka Stockade uprising in 1854. He was chairman of the Ballarat Reform League, helping to convene the Monster Meetings on Bakery Hill that took place around a large flag pole that would soon fly the Southern Cross.

And The Angel Gabriel Said by Andrew Batterham

Score and parts

Brass Ensemble c.14'00.
This work is not intended as a religious piece of music, but as a depiction of the appearance of the angel Gabriel to the prophet Daniel in the Bible. Brass instruments are especially suited to bringing Daniel’s vision to life, as angels are often described as using trumpets to herald significant events.
And The Angel Gabriel Said… consists of two halves. The first depicts the mundane machinations of the human world as viewed from above. The second half describes the coming of the angel Gabriel to Daniel.

Australian Heritage Collection Volume I by Jeanell Carrigan

Album

 Piano music by Australian Women Composers
There were many examples in the early part of the twentieth century in Australia of women who were exceptional pianists and who also wrote a great number of piano works. Many of these women were labelled child prodigies and obviously showed enormous potential and musical ability. These women performed as soloists and accompanists and contributed hugely to the musical and cultural life in Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide. They also left a large collection of compositions written for the solo keyboard.

To produce these three volumes within this Collection, Dr Jeanell Carrigan has researched and edited almost 50 works of Australian women composers, most of which have never been published. Each volume is accompanied by a CD of its works recorded by Jeanell. and biographical notes on each composer. All the composers were born between 1862 and 1915.  Many of them lived for the whole of the twentieth century, and in that time experienced many changes in the way music was composed, thought about  written about and performed.  Of course, they experienced many difficulties.  To be a composer in Australia during this period was a difficult enough, and to be a woman, was short of impossible!

The composers in this volume:  

Ada Maud Fitz-Stubbs (1861-1949); Mona McBurney (1862-1932); Florence Donaldson Ewart (1864-1949); Mary Bowden (1868-1950); (Annie) May Summerbelle (1868-1949); Esther Khan (1877-1962); Una Bounre (1882-1974); May Brahe (1855-1956) and Katherine (Kitty) Parker (1886-1971)

Brightside by Frank Millward

Score and parts

Five pieces from the full work for Soprano and Baritone, Choir and Chamber Orchestra
 
In Brightside a poem, written to a pre-prepared scenario, was interpreted using music, song, dialogue and movement. Synthersising these so that no one form dominates another, Brightside develops themes of blind optimism, obstructive cynicism and misguided treachery. This work was originally performed by Lumiere and Son Theatre Company London.
 
The score presented here is a re-orchestration of the original score that was performed as an electro-acoustic piece, disseminated through an immersive quadraphonic system. This re-orchestration is ideally suited to an acoustic concert presentational format and works well in accompanying a solo or small ensemble dance component.
 
Approximately 18’00” in duration there are five major sections scored for Choir (or Quartet with microphones) S.A.T.B. and Chamber Orchestra consisting of Violin 1, Violin 2, Viola, ‘Cello, Double Bass, Trumpet Bb, Horn in F, Bass Trombone, Keys and Percussion.
 
The sections of the work are
1.     No One Knows How Fine They Are – Duration 4’ 32”
2.     Ella – Duration 3’ 46”
3.     Your Will Never Waivers – Duration 3’ 30”
4.     All I Want – Duration 2’ 00”
5.     Stella – Duration 3’ 36”
 
There are opportunities for solo parts in Ella (Soprano) and in All I Want (Baritone), however these can also be sung by combined ensemble voices. The poem ‘Pale fingers…’ by David Gale is a part of the full poem of the work and can be spoken to fit within the section Ella. It is offered as a performance choice if spoken word were to be included in the performance.

Dining with Alice by Frank Millward

Score and parts PDF

Dining With Alice Suite  - the complete production available as PDF on disc.
For Soloists, Choir and Chamber Orchestra

This work is ideally suited to being presented in a concert format, approximately thirty minutes in duration – not including the String Quintets. If the performance is staged as a concert the String Quintets would aptly be played as pre-concert or interval music.

The music presented here has been taken from the 2011 Artichoke production and comes from that section of the work which took place as a concert performance in an outdoor setting ‘grounds of a 15th-century moated manor house’ performed by the eight characters (Queen of Hearts, Red Queen, White Queen, the Duchess, King of Hearts, White Knight, Mad Hatter, Tweedle (Dum Dee), a choir of waiters and a Chamber Orchestra consisting of Violin 1, Violin 2, Viola, ‘Cello, Double Bass, Trumpet Bb, Horn in F, Bass Trombone, Keys, Percussion.

‘Dining with Alice was one of the earliest instances of immersive (where spectators are part of the action), site-specific (the place is part of the subject) theatre. It was a landmark.’ First performed in 1999 at the Salisbury Festival, the piece was conceived and directed by Hillary Westlake and staged in the Victorian pleasure gardens of Salisbury as part of the Salisbury Festival, commissioned by the then festival director Helen Marriage.  In 2011 the work was part of the Norfolk and Norwich festival, produced by Artichoke, transplanted to the beautiful grounds of a 15th-century moated manor house. ‘Lewis Carroll's characters unleashed from Alice's dream, wandering through a landscape accompanied by an audience whose walk is punctuated by the courses of a meal.’ (Quotations from Susannah Clapp - Observer Newspaper U.K. 15 May 2011).

Individual pieces from "Dining with Alice" Suite are available online.

Spider and the Fly, The by Frank Millward

Duration 6’ 10”
From the original poem by Mary Howitt (1799-1888)
The Spider and the Fly features a quartet of soloists – the Red Queen (Soprano), White Queen (Alto), King of Hearts (Tenor), the White Knight (Baritone) and Choir. This is a character piece and should be considered in the context of its stylistic Victorian roots. Each of the characters should be mindful of the accent used in delivery.
