Product details

The title of the work, a moon falls and is gone, is a phrase excerpted from Frank Herbert's Dune Messiah. In the context of the book it refers to the waning of the moon as a metaphor for the passing of a dynasty or era.
This and the evocative phrase itself suggested the form, melodies, harmonies, and textures on which this work is based.

Apart from the literary reference, the work is essentially a kind of nocturne for orchestra. It lavishes in the sometimes eerie, sometimes warm and lush colours and textures of a nocturne but then moves on to revel in the spectacle and grandeur of the night.
