Shepherds' Gigue
By Anthony St. Pierre December 2005
 
S A
 
 
Composed for a Christmas celebration, this lively, highly syncopated gigue featuring the interval of a fourth throughout suggests the joy of the "shepherds abiding in the field." Suited for fairly advanced players, the piece is but a minute long.

Performing on the accompanying recording are Scott Paterson, soprano; and Anthony St. Pierre, alto.
