Info for Colin Eatock Choral and Orchestral Music

“Ashes of Soldiers began its life as a chamber work for soprano, clarinet, and piano. At the suggestion of Toronto artists’ manager Ann Summers Dossena, I subsequently orchestrated the piece, replacing the piano with strings and harp. The piece is in two movements: the first is for the instrumental ensemble only; in the second, a soprano is added. Thematically, the two movements – which are performed without pause – are closely related. Rather than composing two contrasting, discrete pieces, my intention was to make the second movement a continuation and development of the musical ideas introduced in the first. The text is based on a poem by Walt Whitman, from his collection Leaves of Grass. Despite the poem’s specific setting in the Civil War-era United States, its theme is universal: the mourning of all soldiers who have died in battle, regardless of their allegiances. Ashes of Soldiers is dedicated to my father, Alan James Eatock, who was a soldier at one point in his life, and who passed away in 2010.” (Colin Eatock)
