Description

Embertides is a four-movement suite for organ based on the roughly equal divisions of the church year - Advent, Lent, Whitsun, and Michaelmas - which in turn hark back to earlier, secular traditions. Throughout, there are short references and hints to plainsong and other hymns relevant to the seasons. Drawing on a wide range of colours and textures, the composer creates an evocative and varied suite of pieces, perfectly suited for both recital and church performance; as such, the work will be welcomed by a wide range of players.

About Author

The Welsh-born composer Hilary Tann lives in the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York where she is the John Howard Payne Professor of Music at Union College. Her music is influenced by her childhood in the coal-mining valleys of South Wales, her strong identification with the natural world, and a deep interest in the traditional music of Japan.
