The Spheres

Series: MusicWorks Grade 4 Format: Softcover Score & Parts Composer: Ola Gjeilo

Level: 4

This evocative work is a wind band version of the composer's mass for choir and string orchestra entitled Sunrise. The piece is built around a five-note chorale theme, and the opening section features an overlapping fade-in/fade-out effect meant to give a sense of floating in space, as if surrounded by stars and planets. A stunning composition from an exciting new voice in the band world – Ola Gjeilo. Dur: 5:20

Online audio sample was recorded by the Pacific Lutheran University Wind Ensemble – Dr. Edwin Powell, conductor
