Programme Note:
Unlike most string orchestra works, "Solace" requires the
group to be divided into three smaller sub-ensembles:
1. the "early music" ensemble, consisting of two violins, two violas,
cello and double bass, playing music that is partially derived from the Agnus Dei of Josquin's L'Homme Arme (sexti toni) Mass.
2. the more ethereal sounding group of five violins (3 first, 2 or 3 second), positioned above the rest of the ensemble, playing very long, slow harmonics.
3. the violin and cello soloists, whose music is meant to be a response to that of the "early music" ensemble.
The inspiration for this piece came from my first year of university, when I heard Josquin's L'Homme Arme for the first time.
