"Beneath the Southern Cross"
file size : 436 KB

 

Canberra Composer Kurt Hahn has written a number of compositions originating from his own experiences. "Beneath the Southern Cross" is no exception. He fell in love with Australia on his first night of July 21, 1959, while in the Migrant Camp "Bonegilla", when he stood outside the camp and marveled at the sky's night beauty and the quietness of the Australian Bush. Some 45 years later this love of Australia became a raging passion in him when he traveled around the Kimberleys /Pilbara regions and the Nullarbor Plain for 9 weeks, while camping beneath the starry heavens.

The composition is an ode to the vast outback of Australia as it sleeps safely "Beneath the Southern Cross".

The composition begins with an imitation of the Didgeridoo pounding out its relentlessly pulsating rhythm. (A real Didgeridoo may be used if available.) The brass section gradually enters building the crescendo that signals the setting of the sun sinking over the horizon with a repeated, fanfare-like figure beginning with bar 9 leading to a pianissimo at bar 26, that introduces the theme played by the woodwinds.

At Bar 45 the brass joins the theme and the optional choir. If a choir is used, the dynamics of the Band must be altered according to the size of the choir.

The composition concludes with a recapitulation of the fanfare that is now punctuated by the brass and rhythm sections of the band
