"Patterns" is a piece originally written for 16 brass, but was rewritten for any 5 instruments, and is now also a quintet. The quintet version for any instruments is also available on Amazon. It starts out with an introduction of a choral in D Dorian. Then a melody of this choral is phased between the upper and lower parts until it repeats. This phasing is repeated one more time, but with the upper instruments coming down a note every two repeats and the bottom instruments coming up a note every two repeats. Very interesting chords and harmonies result from the phasing. The phasing resolves and the piece ends in a full choral. The piece is heavy with triplets and changing meter. Parts are included for most any instruments: C, Bb, Eb, and F. Purchasing this book gives you permission to copy the contents for your own needs.
