Discantus

A T B
 
 
'Discant' refers to the streams of parallel first inversion triads characteristic of Medieval English music. This quite approachable rondo combines discant with more recent harmonic idioms. Duration: 3:35

Scott Paterson, alto; Janos Ungvary, tenor; and the composer, bass, perform on the recording provided.
-- Anthony St. Pierre
 
 
A lush and approachable trio-monologue with some very sonorous homophonic moments. Declarative statements examine themselves as a trio before breaking up into shifting pairs to discuss, and reuniting again for the final verdict. This piece is an easy sight-read for intermediate players and would be a great addition to an afternoon play-in.
