Auld Lang Syne by Kathleen McGuire

Score and parts

SATB choir, tin whistle and guitar.  c.5'00
Auld Lang Syne is a traditional, Scottish poem that was adapted by Robert Burns in 1788. In English, a literal translation is “old long since,” or more colloquially: “long, long ago” or “days of long ago.” For hundreds of years, the poem has been set to a traditional folk song, of which there are many variations. The tune used here - the original, pentatonic melody Burns chose to set with the poem - is nowadays less familiar than the modern tune that is most commonly heard sung by revellers in many countries at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve. Burns, when he presented the song to the British Museum, remarked: "The following song, an old song, of the olden times, and which has never been in print, nor even in manuscript until I took it down from an old man's singing, is enough to recommend any air." The original folk song to which it was set was known as: "I fee'd a lad at Michaelmas.”

The music is based around the Prelude to Suite I for solo cello by J S Bach (BWV 1007). The cello begins the work and is interrupted by the violin playing a little from Sonata II (BWV 1003), and later from Partita (BWV 1006). The flute plays excerpts from Brandenburg Concerto in G (BWV 1048) and Partita (BWV 1013)

Bu-Hwal (Resurrection) by Ji-yun Lee

Score and parts

Percussion, piano, cello, c.12'30
Korean traditional music's rhythmic modes (changdan), pansori vocal techniques (grace notes with accents and glissandi) and modes (pyungyangjo and kyemyunjo), are merged with Western avant-garde compositional techniques (dissonance/consonance and diatonic/chromatic sonorities) whilst samulnori gong-sounds (with their eternal after-tone resonance association to Catholic bells) become symbolic of the spiritual dimension. A traditional Korean changgo drum quietly unfolds, with remembered samulnori percussion ensemble rhythms into an accruing motif momentum towards an explosive early two-handed oneness climax. Its gentle subsiding gives way to a beautiful cello lyric-stasis that floats through the air in Korean modal based sounds.
