by Traditional; arr. Brian Blume

Medium Concert Percussion

6 Players

Instrumentation: • 1 glockenspiel • 1 vibraphone • 2–3 marimbas*—(1) 4-octave, (1) low A, (1) low C * If 3 marimbas aren’t available, this piece can be performed with 2 marimbas with M1 and M4 sharing a low C instrument.

Brian Blume’s arrangement of Coventry Carol, a traditional English carol based on a biblical play entitled The Pageant of the Shearman and Tailors, is a delicate and haunting treatment of its original. Scored for glockenspiel, vibraphone, and 4 different marimba parts, Mr. Blume does a fantastic job of creating differing textures throughout. He does this by layering in different voices at different times and by using the lowest marimba like a string bass, playing rhythmic figures while the other marimba parts are rolling.

Coventry Carol was premiered by the Southeastern university Percussion Ensemble in December 2017.
