Price £9.50

Ideal as both study or concert repertoire, these two short dances are lyrical and accessible, offering useful ensemble music for the intermediate trio. Both are in waltz-styles, are tonal and traditional, were composed in 2006 and premiered at Wells Cathedral School. Simple and direct, with scope for characterisation and interpretation, these should appeal to players of all ages. There are few technical challenges for any player but much to enjoy.

Humphrey Clucas is known primarily for his choral music but has written a number of impressive works for double bass in recent years. He writes in a traditional and tonal style producing music which is accessible to performers and audiences alike and Recital Music publish a range of his music for double bass.

Performance Level: 5;6


Humphrey Clucas was born in 1941 and read English at King's College, Cambridge, where he was also a Choral Scholar. Having taught English for twenty-seven years he subsequently became a Lay Vicar at Westminster Abbey but is now retired.

As a composer he is self taught, and although he is well-known for a set of Anglican Responses written as an undergraduate, almost all his serious music has been written over the last twenty-five years. He has a growing reputation as a choral composer and has produced an impressive and steady stream of choral works, both sacred and secular, alongside much instrumental music. He has written works for Cathedrals in Chichester, Guildford, Salisbury and Winchester, as well as for King's College, Cambridge, Southwell Minster and Westminster Abbey.
