Rossini: Quoniam Tu Solus Sanctus

I have transcribed and arranged the setting of the “Quoniam tu solus sanctus” from Rossini’s Messa di Gloria. The opening thirty-five bars contain the composer’s original clarinet obbligato, followed by a literal transcription of the bass’s solo vocal line, adjusted to the tessitura of the clarinet. The result is typical of Rossini in every way, from the ornate original clarinet solo to the distinctive melodic content.

Clarinet Cantilena

Clarinet Cantilena introduces a new album of music I have devised for clarinetists of all abilities to play. The selections are personal choices, made almost entirely from vocal works that I believe to be particularly suitable for the characteristics of the clarinet in recital.

Whilst the transcriptions are mostly straightforward, I have enlisted the help of Stephen Barlow in providing piano reductions of orchestral material, and in creating an original set of variations on three themes from Verdi’s La forza del destino.
