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)
Despite being part of one of the most mobile societies in history, it´s easy for us to feel stuck where we are. Whether because of a recent move or because we´re still in the exact same place we´ve been for years, many of us just aren´t where we thought we´d be or doing what we thought we´d be doing. Sometimes, we may wonder if God knows what he´s doing. How can this be part of his plan? With enthusiasm and contagious joy, Shauna Pilgreen assures listeners that, yes, God does have a plan and a purpose for them - right where they are. In fact, he sent them there. She invites listeners to ´´live sent´´, showing them how to see their surroundings with fresh eyes and renewed energy. Weaving her own remarkable story with biblical habits listeners can incorporate into their daily routines, Pilgreen equips us to reach out into our communities with God´s love, knowing that our efforts are never in vain. 1.
