Meditations and Hymns is a contemplative and gentle exploration of a simple melodic line, repeated in varying harmonic and textural contexts through arch form (ABCBA). A predominance of rolled chords and wave-like harmony exploits the resonance available in the lower register of the marimba (4.3 octave).
It is the first piece in 'Dance Vignettes', a set of three short marimba solos composed over the summer of 2020-21 at the request of Australian percussion virtuoso Claire Edwardes.
Duration: 5 min.
Difficulty: Medium — Suitable for late high school/early tertiary students
Commission note: Commissioned by Claire Edwardes with funds from APRA/AMCOS Creative Recovery Grant and the Modest Expectations Foundation
