Description

Dayspring by Chad Floyd features a four-note motive that is presented at the very beginning by the keyboard instruments. This motive is presented throughout the piece in unison statements as well as being presented in a staggered fashion which creates an overlapping effect. The rhythm of the motive, four consecutive eighth notes, is used to structure the climatic point of the piece and is sometimes modified throughout in order to give variance to particular phrases. The keyboard instruments, which carry the weight of the motive, are backed by a core percussion group including the snare drum, bass drum, and timpani. This is a fun and upbeat piece and is perfect piece for an experienced middle school or beginning high school ensemble.

This piece comes as a professionally printed and bound score and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or for tablet viewing.

Instrumentation

Glockenspiel

Xylophone

Vibraphone

2 marimbas—(1) 4-octave, (1) low A

2 timpani

Drums (snare drum, bass drum)

Ride cymbal

Accessories (triangle, tambourine)
