Description: Recording of Reed Holmes's Carousel for choir and tape. The two movements represent a different aspect in the cycle of life: movement 1 "The Whispering Wind" is from the point of view of the Elder, introspective and thoughtful, and movement 2 "Carousel" is from the point of view of the Younger, rhythmic, aggressive, spontaneous, and freely melodic. The choir adds heterophonic elaborations of the pattern to the second movement.
Creator: Holmes, Reed
