New Norcia textures : for trumpet and pipe organ / David Pye.
by David Pye (2005)
New Norcia Textures is a substantial recital work for trumpet and pipe organ inspired by aspects of the monastic town of New Norcia in Western Australia. The Benedictine Community of New Norcia has a tradition of music making, stemming back to its foundation in 1846. Bishop Salvado, who founded the community, was a gifted organist, pianist and composer. From the earliest years, the Aboriginal men and boys of the mission formed a brass band. Music making in New Norcia reached its peak in the first half of the twentieth century when the Community produced a variety of musical ensembles, including a string orchestra, and Fr Stephen Moreno an accomplished composer, produced a large body of works that were performed in Catholic churches and schools throughout Australia, right up until the mid 1960s. The peaceful environment of New Norcia is highly conducive to creative endeavours and I have found a well of musical inspiration in the various textures of the town, visual, aural, spiritual and historic.
New Norcia Textures is in one movement, comprising three sections (Allegro - Adagio - Allegro) using trumpet, flugelhorn and piccolo trumpet respectively. The work was written to be performed on the delightfully idiosyncratic organ of the New Norcia Chapel, but is readily performable on organs elsewhere. It is dedicated to Dominic Perissinotto, a long-suffering but most enthusiastic and capable collaborator on this and previous works I have written for pipe organ.
