A modern-ish work.
I'd started an experimental quintet but the voice inspired me to write a stand-alone piece exploring various strings timbres. Unfortunately my sample library doesn't have everything I’d like - particularly the voice collection so I limited myself to what’s there (without using any FX tricks to change the timbre).
It’s a small string orchestra from which soloists are drawn: 2 x 4 violins; 3 violas; 3 cellos.
The second violins are to the right facing the rostrum.
Many thanks if you’re of a mind to give it a listen – and any comment good or bad is always appreciated.
(Ps, the file is called a cantata because that's the folder it resides in).
