Son of Cimetiere-BSN/PN

Composer: Grantham, Donald

Publisher: Potenza Music

Edition: 65650


Son of Cimetiere
for bassoon and piano
by Donald Grantham (b 1947)- American composer


In Voodoo lore, Baron Cimetiere is the loa (spirit) who is the keeper and guardian of cemeteries. Depictions of him are quite chilling. He is usually pictured in dark tailcoat and tall dark hat- like an undertaker- wearing dark glasses with one lens missing. He carries a cane, smokes cigars, and is a notorious trickster. Son of Cimetiere is based on materials from the composer's Baron Cimetiere Mambo for Wind Ensemble.
