NCEM YOUNG COMPOSERS AWARD RESOURCES
Each year the NCEM Young Composers Award invites young composers to create new works for instruments and performance styles of previous centuries. Here we are pleased to share the guides produced to help them.
Writing for the Cornett, Sackbut and Chamber Organ
Imitating the sound and articulation of the voice was central to the playing techniques of renaissance wind players. To help us continue this tradition, ECSE are looking for new pieces that treat cornetts and sackbuts as 'wordless voices', closer to a group of madrigal singers than to a modern brass ensemble.
