'Dawn' is a musical setting of words by Australian World War One soldier, Ellis Silas. The first part of the piece reflects on the horrors of trench warfare, conveyed through angular, recitative like melodies and dissonant harmonic accompaniment. In the second half of the song, a much more tonal melodic style is used, accompanied by consonant harmonies, in order to convey Ellis Silas’ dreams and hopes of peace to come.
This work is suitable for good amateur and professional performers and is suitable for the NZCT Chamber Music Contest.
Ellis Silas. Taken from his World War 1 diary entries.
