Chimes Mvt. VII - Sunset Music

Quick Overview

Sharkova brings a third selection from Gavrilin's massive work Chimes to better choirs. Sunset Music features a consistent bell-like 5/4 rhythm in the lower voices, with a simple and lovely ringing melody in the higher range. The music builds to a forte clanging, before dying away into silence. Text is onomatopoeic syllables ("din don don" or a sustained "bom," etc.), and the optional (although recommended) oboe part is available as a free download.
