Ensemble Trame Sonore performing Elizabeth Raum’s Searching for Sophia
MOTHER, Grant me a voice, Oh Mother of Life. Don’t let them silence me, those who would take away my name, my children, my place in existence… those who would denounce my very soul; for I have much to say, I have much to do.
I feel the life stir within my body, and though it be agony to let it forth, I would willingly suffer to allow that life to exist, to grow and thrive. But it must know that I was its mother.
A great rendition of my Festival Fanfare performed at the Canadian Women’s Brass Conference, January 19, 2019, Walter Hall, University of Toronto. For more information visit Canadian Women’s Brass Collective
I was just working on putting in the notes to my first opera, The Final Bid, into Finale and got tired so I ego surfed and discovered this fantastic rendition of my arrangement of A Mighty Fortress (is Our God).
According to the description, this appears to be by the faculty trombones of the Stetson University, FL. Performers are: Kerry Couch, Joey Powell, Rodney Maingrette, Robyn McClure, Emily Nichols, CJ Shafer and Chris Haines (Bass).
I blundered onto this absolutely gorgeous recording of my Fantasy for Trombone with a British brass band arrangement by Dorothy Gates, tuba performed by Steve Sykes and Nick Hudson playing the solo on trombone. I’ve never heard it this way. My gosh, they do a great job!
