This fascinating original by Richard Meyer incorporates easy mixed meter, modal scales and driving syncopations to create a level of excitement not often found in works at this grade level. The energetic Allegro sections surround a Largo section of intense beauty. An ideal concert and contest selection.
As the title suggests, a driving, rhythmic pulse permeates throughout this contemporary original selection by Richard Meyer. The piece incorporates two diverse moods ? a highly rhythmic first section in B Minor, built on rising and falling thirds, followed by a simple chorale in folk song style presented first in the violins and then passed throughout the ensemble. As this slow section winds down, the energy is once again established with the re-introduction of earlier material. The chorale is then heard again, this time coupled with the energetic figures that started the piece. A great choice for your next concert or contest, Momentum provides a wide variety of outstanding teaching opportunities while using a fresh new sound that your students will love! (5:30)

In The Secret Life of Bees, the narrator´s voice is quite convincing as a 14-year-old girl. Sue Monk Kidd uses a straightforward style, adding small remnants of magical realism to incorporate the bees, as well as the strange string of events that brings Lily and Rosaleen to the Boatwright house. Using historical markers - like the Civil Rights Act - Kidd manages to keep the story grounded in real events, counterbalancing a few fantastic or eccentric elements, like the pink house and a non-traditional view on religion. The beginning of each chapter features a quotation from nonfiction works that deals with bees and beekeeping. They all serve similar purposes, but many of the quotes are only loosely related to beekeeping. This is a summary and analysis of the book and not the original book. 1. Language: English.
