About this work & Performance Notes

The Frozen Lake

Harmony 1
Harmony 2 & Descant


The melody of this piece started life as a means of giving pupils practice in reading quaver rests and coming in on half beats. We’d also recently been studying relative minors, working in F major and D minor - hence the key of The Frozen Lake. To help pupils maintain the quaver feel, I added the flowing accompaniment, and once that was there, the piece just seemed to be crying out for a plaintive descant to be put on top, and so an exercise was transformed and this ensemble was born. And the great thing is it’s still useful for practising coming in on half beats...
