Weait - Two Canadian Tunes for Nine Winds (6'00) PDF

First score page 1. My Lonely Heart from Weait - Two Canadian Folk Tunes for Nine Winds.
First score page to 2. The Jolly Raftsmen from Weait - Two Canadian Tunes for Nine Winds.
SKU: 7407 REV-pdf

These are arrangements of two melodies found in "Come 'A Singing Canadian Folk Songs" by Marius Barbeau, et al published in Ottawa by the King's Printer, 1974. 1. 'My Lonely Heart' was collected from Mme. Bolduc of Quebec City in 1918. 2. 'The Jolly Raftsmen' is a lumberman's song from the Ottawa River. This version of 'Jolly Raftsmen' is the first one I made. Later, I set it for 12 woodwinds as 'The Merry Raftsmen' [7905] and for woodwind quintet 'The Jolly Raftsmen' [9513]. The work is dedicated to my college room-mate, the Canadian composer and painter, Donald Coakley.

Weait - Birthday Flourish for 6 winds (à6) (1'40) PDF

SKU: 8003B-pdf

I made this transcription of the Birthday Flourish (à14) for my 75th birthday celebration. It calls for 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons and 2 horns. Careful study of the score will expose a Schoenbergian penchant for retrograditude in the quarter-note interludes.

This is the downloadable version of the work. There is no pre-printed, paper version.

Weait - Fragments for wind octet (3'50) PDF

First score page of Weait Fragments for wind octet.
SKU: 9223-pdf

Fragments for wind octet was composed beginning in 1992 and worked on sporadically until 2010. It uses a compositional technique as if themes placed on a bulletin board are moved around for each instrument. The motives recall the traditional figures played when harmonies – ensembles of pairs of woodwinds and horns - were in vogue: leaping clarinet arpeggios, bouncy bassoon bass lines, sprightly rhythms and lyrical oboe melodies. The horns, however, play a corrupted version of ‘horn fifths’ throughout without sharing it.
