Sheet Music: Score
Themes on a variation, Op. 3 : for brass and percussion / Jonathan Little.
by Jonathan David Little (1986)
This work derives most of its melodic and motivic material from
the notes G, B flat, C, D and E flat - to which the timpani are
tuned. This enables the timpani to participate in much of the
melodic material that emerges from the given notes.
The most prominent theme to emerge can best be heard on the two solo glockenspiels - this theme itself being a variation of the old English carol, "This is the truth sent from above". The work is scored for 2 trumpets, horn, euphonium, trombone, tuba (in C), timpani and 2 percussion.
