Lament : for 3 viols (treble, tenor, bass) / Jennifer Fowler.
by Jennifer Fowler (2007)
Lament was written in response to the death of a friend.
In this piece I wanted to spin a long line of wordless lamentation. I was aiming to explore what one could say within quite strict limitations: spinning out a few notes at a time; twisting and turning; keeping up a sense of momentum and a sense of progression. Underneath, the bleak intervals of 4ths and 5ths at cadence points are used to underpin the line, but also to unsettle it with uneasy independent movement.
