The Moon By Night
McBirnie, A

Andrew McBirnie presents The Moon By Night, for alto flute and piano. Based on a Scottish metrical psalm tune, alternately known by the titles Dundee or French which originated in the Scottish Psalter of 1615, the title of the work comes from the third stanza:

The moon by night thee shall not smite,
nor yet the sun by day.

-Psalm 121 (Scottish Psalter)

From the composer:

I have always been struck by the monumental dignity, solemnity and simplicity of the Scottish Psalter tunes, and this particular one has been a repeated source of inspiration for me over a period of some 15-20 years. I have always found it to be extraordinarily beautiful, with its measured, graduated rise and fall, and the flattened 7th which appears, tellingly and shockingly, in the bass towards the end of the first line.

Duration: 6 . For the late intermediate or advanced player.
