Martin Dalby: El Remanso Del Pitido (Vocal Score)

Books | Vocal score

Publisher: Novello
Composer: Martin Dalby
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work
El remanso del pitido has been commissioned by the London Sinfonietta for the London Sinfonietta Chorus who give the first performance this evening.

It is a work of nostalgia, a lament for the decline of steam engines - the stillness of the whistle. Based mainly on a poem by the Spanish writer, Gregorio Corral.

The setting is for twelve voices, eight of them singing through close microphones. The work is fourth in a series of pieces derived from 13th Century homophonic Spanish cantigas and canciones. The final series of works will form a sort of song-book, the composer's own accounts of early Spanish music. The idea of a song-book is contained in the title of the first work of the series, Cancionero para una mariposa.
