David Lang: memorial ground

massed singers and soloists (package of 10 octavos)


For massed singers and soloists.

The title, ‘Memorial Ground’ has a double meaning. It refers to the battlefield itself, but a ‘ground’ in music is also a chord sequence that repeats over and over, on top of which you can add extra lines. Think of the ending of Hey Jude or Pachelbel’s Canon – they are both grounds.
