This is a version of my "Three Poems by Gwen Harwood". Due to the neglect of the original I rearranged it for saxophone quartet and concert band, adding many florid revisions, especially for all members of the quartet. It requires a sophisticated musical lyricism.
Instrumentation: Saxophone quartet, concert band: piccolo, 2 flutes, oboe, cor anglais, clarinet in E flat, 3 clarinets in B flat, bass clarinet in B flat, contrabass clarinet, 2 bassoons, 4 trumpets in B flat, 4 horns in F, 3 trombones, euphonium, tuba, timpani, percussion (3 players).
Duration: 17 min.
Contents note: 1. Questions -- 2. Innocence -- 3. Acceptance
Commission note: Commissioned by a consortium of twenty United States universities and colleges.
First performance: by David Stanhope — 23 Mar 02. Performed by College Band Directors National Association Western/Northwestern Intercollegiate Band
