Marsden Moor

SKU: FM482 Categories: ,


Writted to evoke the open spaces, serenity and yet power of the moors, Marsden Moor is based on a motif built from two major seconds a perfect fourth apart. The motif is developed and imitated as the piece progresses, giving a rather solitary feeling to the music. A second theme carries the journey until a sequential progression lifts the music to a dignified but powerful climax. When the music appears to resolve to a more relaxed tonality the second theme carries it off modally to reiterate the power which gradually dies away to leave the landscape intact and silent again.
