Sun Songs for Soprano, Oboe, Cello, and Piano

by Jenni Brandon (b. 1977)

Traditional American Indian Prose and Poetry

I. Song to Bring Fair Weather (Nootka)
II. Song To Pull Down The Clouds (Papago)
III. A Prayer (Havasupai)


This edition comes with: One oboe part, one cello part, and two complete scores (one for the pianist, and one for the vocalist). 

From the composer:

The 3 texts for Sun Songs comes from translated text of the North American Indians. I thought these three texts fit together well in telling a story of honoring the sun and nature for what it does, from bringing beautiful colors to the sky to giving us food and life.

This work was commissioned by Definiens on the occasion of their 10th anniversary as a new music ensemble dedicated to presenting new music with special guest soprano Tony Arnold.
