Weait - Quadruplets for Any 4 Bass Clef Instruments (1'15)

First full score page to Weait - Quadruplets for Any 4 Bass Clef Instruments
SKU: [1203E]

There’s a longish story behind the title Quadruplets. It was originally entitled Couplets for four oboes, a transcription and higher transposition of earlier compositions of the same title for various double reed combinations. Couplets was invited by Yu-Hey Sze of the Hong Kong Kamerata as a demonstration piece for the oboe section of the Macau Youth Orchestra. When my wife, the logical one in our marriage, saw the score she said, “But it’s not for couples its for quadruplets”. Hence, the new title.

Weait - Processional for band (5'40)

SKU: [6110D]

The Processional is my first extensive, non-class-assignment composition. It was written in the days between exam week and my college graduation in June, 1961. It was performed later that summer by the Westchester Pops Band at the Kensico Dam Plaza in Valhalla, New York. It has gone through a number of revisions since then. One observant musician thought it typical of pieces written in the 1960's with quartal and quintal harmonies.
