Compositions by Marjorie Downward

Fling! Is scored for a Wind Decet : piccolo – flute – oboe – cor anglais – Bb clarinet – bass clarinet – 2 bassoons – 2 French horns in F.
This one movement piece is quick, jaunty and fun, with intermittent touches of harmonic wildness. Written for advanced players in mind, Fling! requires nimble fingers and precise articulation.
Score & parts available on request: £25.00 + p&p costs.

This subtle and atmospheric piece was inspired by taking a walk through the woods towards Spynie Palace in Moray. This old ruin was silhouetted against the quiet moonlit night sky – it was quite a spooky experience!

“Camels & Kings” is written for solo Cor anglais & strings.
The inspiration came from colourful Christmas card illustrations of The Three Kings riding their camels through the desert whilst following yonder star towards Bethlehem to give their gifts to the new baby Jesus.
