The Future of Fire, Sheet music Book


for SATB or upper voices, and wind bandThe Future of Fire is a brief but powerful work.

The vibrant scoring creates a feeling of explosive energy from beginning to end with intense bursts from a battery of percussion.

The melodic material is taken from a popular and touching love song from Shannxi province in north-western China, which is coupled with rhythmic motives in both the wind band and chorus.

Folk melodies from this region use intervals of a minor seventh these angular leaps are suited to the dynamic spirit ofthis work.

The chorus sings a vocalise based on repeated syllables that are found in Chinese folk songs, as well as many folk songs from around the world.
