SOLO VOCAL

Dawn             

Scored for:  baritone*, trumpet and piano

                        * also available for tenor and soprano voices and for SATB, trumpet  and piano

Level:              Medium to advanced

Duration:        4’30”

Other info:     ‘Dawn’ is a musical setting of words by Australian World War One soldier, Ellis Silas. The first part of the piece reflects on the horrors of trench warfare, conveyed through angular, recitative-like melodies and dissonant harmonic accompaniment. In the second half of the song, a much more tonal melodic style is used, accompanied by consonant harmonies, in order to convey Ellis Silas’ dreams and hopes of peace to come.

 

"A more challenging song but worth every minute of endeavour. This profoundly moving text has been set exquisitely, never missing a moment to highlight the sombre yet ultimately hopeful mood. Biting harmonies with mournful unisons flowering into warm cadences that never fail to have an extraordinary impact". 

Gina Sanders, International Soprano and Director of King’s College Chapel Choir, Auckland.
