Original

Desert Voices composed by Roland Barrett. For concert band. Concert Band. FJH Young Band. Score only. Full set. score and parts. also available. B1371. Grade 2.5. Score only. Duration 3 minutes, 15 seconds. Published by The FJH Music Company Inc. FJ.B1371S. Depicting the nightly cycle of life in the desert, this captivating work begins with the haunting sounds of a barren desert as relentless heat hits it by day. At night, exotic plants and animals spring to life, portrayed with rhythmic vitality and bold musical statements. The work ends as softly as it began, with the relentless sun once again beating down on the parched desert. Intense and captivating. Deserts are among the harshest and most inhospitable regions on earth. Scorched by the punishing sun, parched by lack of rainfall, and ravaged by arid winds, these areas might seem incapable of sustaining anything more than the simplest forms of life. But, at night, deserts reveal a fascinating secret. As the relentless sun disappears from the western sky, all types of exotic plants and animals spring to life, eagerly celebrating the precious hours of cool darkness before dawn brings yet another harsh day. The themes and quasi arch form of Desert Voices attempt to reflect the desert's nightly cycle, the period beginning at dusk and lasting until dawn. Appropriate for middle school and smaller high school groups. Second clarinets usually stay below the break. Parts are written with more independence, and instrumentation increases slightly. There is still adequate doubling in the lower voices. Grades 2 - 2.5.
