The Old Stone Church

Martha Hill Duncan

Categories: Duets

Level: Early Advanced/Advanced (Gr 8 - 9)

This piano duet was originally written for my son Alexander Duncan and former piano student Kristin Rae and is around a Gr.9/10 level. They premiered it beautifully, but we all felt something was missing. Thanks to Alex Forgay and Emily Ninavaie for encouraging to complete it and for premiering the final version in Toronto. My mother grew up in East Texas surrounded by "old time religion" and music...her indomitable spirit and love of singing is honoured in the middle song section. Art work is by Kingston, On resident Spencer Hope.

Two contrasting outdoor winter skating scenes celebrating the historic community of Kingston ON. 1. On the Pond: A shivery winter morning surrounded by ice fog with the sun just beginning to peek through. The skater is alone and christens the pristine ice first with easy glides, then more energetic spins and jumps. An exquisite solitary moment amid nature's winter beauty. 2. At City Hall: The bustling and energetically charged outdoor rink from the first skater of the day to the last stragglers of the night. A variety of skaters are featured - beginners and experienced skaters along with energetic teenage boys and romantic couples.
