Michael Finnissy: Beuk O'Newcassel Sangs

Books | Clarinet, Soprano, Piano Accompaniment

Composer: Michael Finnissy
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

A Beuk o'Newcassel Sangs is the title of a nineteenth-century folk-song collection. Finnissy uses the folk-song texts, with numerous alterations, as a starting point for this own melodic material. The seven songs evoke a folk quality through the use of heavily decorated modal tunes. Only one line of melody is heard at a time, and the clarinet and piano sustain drones around the vocal part or provide linking material.
