Variants on a Shaped Note Tune was commissioned by the Homewood Middle School Band (Homewood, AL), and was premiered at the Alabama Music Educators Associat ion Conference in January 2006. The title refers to a traditional early Americ an singing style based on reading a system of shapes rather than musical notes . Based on the Scottish tune Pisgah from the shape note songbook, The Sacred H arp, the Variants begin simply with a statement by unison clarinets. From ther e begins a series of distinctive variations featuring an ingenious mix of styl es, tempos, and instrumentation. Destined to become a staple on required conte st lists for years to come, this work provides an exceptional complement for a ny program or festival. Dur: 5:00 (Includes Full Performance CD)
