Peter Maxwell Davies: Apple-Basket, Apple-Blossom

Books | Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass, Piano

Catalogue No: CH59618
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work
Peter Maxwell Davies' 1990 work for unaccompanied SATB choir, written for the BBC singers. Words by George Mackay Brown.

'Written for the BBC Singers, this piece requires a high level of choral expertise in its rhythms, intricate textures (though nearly always in four parts), wide-ranging vocal lines and characteristically dark but luminous harmony, impregnated with tritones and seconds. Not for the first time, Davies and George Mackay Brow follow the Stations of the Cross, though the fourteen sections are joined into a continuous slow-fast-slow musical movement, and the references to the events of Holy Week are oblique.

Vocal score with piano accompaniment for rehearsal purposes.
