Cries of the Stentor is dedicated to the memory of Anthony Raisbeck.

From the composer:  The original version of this work was written for soprano sax and piano and premiered by saxophonist Gerard McChrystal and pianist Kathryn Page at the Purcell Room in 1995.  I chose the soprano as I am a soprano player myself and wanted to exploit its vivid upper register, vocal-like sonorities and its intrinsic virtuosity, although primarily as a vehicle for its expressive qualities rather than mere technical display. “Stentor” (a loud-voiced herald in ancient times of war) appropriately depicts the great emotional turmoil I was experiencing at the time of writing this piece.

The E-Edition PDF bundle includes the flute part and piano accompaniment.

“Cries of the Stentor” is also available in hard-copy from June Emerson Wind Music.
