I have a piece in the final of a competition for a work for solo euphonium (bombardino) and strings. There was going to be a concert of the final four pieces in April by the “Ciudad de Orihuela” Orchestra in Orihuela, which is near Alicante in the Comunitat Valenciana in Spain, but this has been postponed. I'm not sure of the reasons as there is a bit of a language barrier.
The piece I wrote was based on plainchant 'Christi miles gloriosus' used at the feast of St Vincent. He is the patron saint of the Comunitat Valenciana. I also used one of my favourite ingredients, birdsongs from that area of Spain.
