Vignettes on ‘There is no Rose’


By Leslie Betteridge

SKU: 8910 Category:


This piece is based on several themes from the composer’s Christmas anthem There is no Rose..” . The harmonic language and musical style of this piece may remind one of Herbert Howell’s compositions, especially his Psalm-Preludes. A range of emotions is expressed through the changing dynamics and sectional nature of this piece. This workwould be very effective if used in connection with the composer’s anthem of the same title, as the association of words with certain musical themes would give those themes even more meaning. However, the work by itself would be a very strong addition to the Christmas service or a program of Christmas music.” –The Diapason
