The Future of Fire Sheet music
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.
