    Gorgeous. The Partita is a wonderful piece of music. Although this piece can be played by young bands, it is musically mature and will be an ideal center piece for any band concert, middle school through the university level.

    Program Notes
    Partita was originally composed for brass band in 1973. The work is in three movements, and uses material based on the 13th century plainsong 'Dies Irae". The opening Intrada is sombre. the second movement is a 'chorale and variations. the chorale melody follows the main outline of the plainsong. the five variations are varied in mood and intensity. the final March is much happier in mood and has a lyrical tune in the middle first heard on horns. However, references to the 'Dies Irae' are still apparent and the final bars of the work contain a quote from the opening movement.
