Scel lem duib

Tawnie Olson

2013 Selections

Olson - Scel lem duib

Cover art for Olson - *Scel lem duib*

"I bring you tidings; the stag bells; winter pours." The text is in Irish, depicting a catalog of winter images which are reflected in the music-- at times brittle, cold, and stark, yet beautiful. A challenging piece in a contemporary idiom using aleatoric techniques, wind sounds, imitation, and an impressive range of textures and expression. For eight part chorus with harp accompaniment. Duration: 6:40 Part of the National Collegiate Choral Organization Choral Series/NCCO Series.
