Aurora Musis Amica - Concert Band

Catalog: WM-107

Price: $95.00


An uplifting and inspiring piece for young adult/student musicians, the piece opens with a soundscape reminiscent of the dawn bursting into colour over a still lake. It then unfolds into an uplifting and hopeful fanfare before fading back into a wash of colours for the final bars.

Aurora musis amica
Here I am, contemplating the dawn again.
This early morning time has become irresistible,
a momentwith my thoughts and with awesome splendor.
Often there are nowords that can express the awareness
of the universe as I watchlight wash over the horizon.
Dawn is friend of the muses.

Commissioned by the Canberra Grammar School as part of the Centenary of Canberra 2013 and the Canberra International Music Festival.
