When spirits soar : for alto or soprano saxophone (or clarinet) and piano / Margaret S. Brandman
by Margaret Brandman (1996)
This work was written following the composer's participation in a Rei-Ki course, during which she acquired the art of transmitting the universal life force for energy renewal and healing through the hands. The work is a through composed work in four sections. The begining and ending sections in the Dorian mode of D, are thematically related. The second and third sections present varying melodic ideas moving away from the modal tonality. A feature of the second section is the four-bar long descant pedal, held by the saxophone. The soaring melody lines and relaxed approach created by moving away from fixed time signatures, entrains the listener to breathe deeply resulting in a feeling of well being.
