Quipperies V1 (1-4)

by Lowell E. Shaw (b. 1930) - American composer and hornist
1. With a Bounce

4. Light & Fast
The intent here is to come up with some fun music in various popular styles, this time for five voices. As in the other works in this series, the rhythmic impetus is built into the parts, the lead is passed from one voice to another frequently, and the parts are of pretty much equal importance throughout. In this volume, the bass line is assigned exclusively to the fifth part.
