A madrigal, popular in the Renaissance and early Baroque, may be defined as a secular, polyphonic partsong, a through-composed work attempting to express the emotion contained within each line of a poem on which it is based. Loosely, a madrigal may be thought of as a linear journey across pallets of color and emotional soundscapes, and this is precisely what Wallin Huff’s 2014 so-titled work for orchestra aims to do.
I feel like a proud Mama! I always get so giddy when a substantial new work like this is complete. I just love it! 🙂
Now… I need to polish up the look and formatting of the score and parts… Just in time for the mid-December deadline of a few “Call for Scores” I wrote this for… Keep your fingers crossed for me! And… if you happen to play with an orchestra you think would enjoy playing this work, let me know! 😀
