COMPOSITIONS by HEATHER JEAN HARTY  B.Mus., UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA, 1999  A THESIS SUBMITTED IN PARTIAL FULFILLMENT OF THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE DEGREE OF MASTER OF MUSIC in THE FACULTY OF GRADUATE STUDIES (Composition)  THE UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA OCTOBER 2007  © HEATHER JEAN HARTY, 2007  ABSTRACT The thesis for the Master of Music degree in Composition consists of live performances of original works composed during graduate study. I have written approximately an hour of music for various media. Included in this submission are the following works: The Fir Woods (SATB choir), Night Cycles (chamber ensemble), Days (chamber ensemble), Stick, Stock, Stone (SSA choir), AirAmeva  (concert band), and Stanzas from 'The Phnce's Progress' (song cycle).  While some of these works have had multiple performances, the most significant performance date for each piece is, respectively: April 16, 2005, April 4, 2005, January 30, 2007, February 19, 2007, June 29, 2007, and November 19, 2007.  TABLE OF CONTENTS Abstract  ii  Table of Contents  ii"  THE FIR WOODS  1  NIGHT CYC LES  14  DAYS  33  STICK, STOCK, STONE  64  AIR AM EVA  75  STANZAS FROM T H E PRINCE'S PROGRESS'  100  Heather Harty  The Fir Woods text by C.G.D.

(1860-1943) T h e wash of endless waves is in their tops, Endlessly swaying, and the long winds stream Athwart them from the far-off shores of dream. Through the stirred branches filtering, faintly drops Mystic dream-dust of isle, and palm, and cave, Coral and sapphire, realms of rose, that s e e m More radiant than ever earthly gleam Revealed of fairy m e a d or haunted wave. A cloud of gold, a cleft of blue p r o f o u n d , T h e s e are my gates of wonder, surged about By tumult of tossed bough and rocking crest: T h e vision lures. T h e spirit spurns her bound, S p r e a d s her unprisoned wing, and drifts from out This green and humming gloom that wraps my rest.  source: Library and Archives C a n a d a .

Heather Harty (b. 1976) text: Joseph Campbell (1879-1944)* Days (I) One is a black valley Interlude: the fallow time One is a moon One is a cloud of gulls Days (II)  The days of my life Come and go. One is a black valley, Rising to blue goat-parks On the crowns of distant hills. I hear the falling of water And the whisper of ferns' tongues, And, still more, I hear The silence. One is a moon, Distorted, cold A window without light. The rain pits the rock-face. The beeches cast their deadness Into the sea. One is a cloud of gulls Over a plough. The sun-married air Is filled with their wings and their crying. Slowly, slowly, The lea breaks In deep furrows of red. The days of my life Come and go. Performance notes: 1. Five piano strings are to be prepared with medium sized metal paperclips, placed on the following pitches, given in ascending order: the lowest D#, E, G, G#, and B (these pitches are held down throughout the opening of the fourth movement). The paperclips should be hung so that they are loosely suspended and not clipped onto the string. 2. In the fifth movement, there is an optional tambourine part to be played by the soprano. *Copyright held by Prof. Brendan Kennelly of Dublin, Ireland.

By her head lilies arid rosebuds grow. The lilies droop, will the rosebuds blow? The silver slim lilies hang the head low; Their stream is scanty; their sunshine rare; Let the sun blaze out, and let the stream flow, They will blossom and wax fair.  II.  "Up, up, up," sad glad voices swelled: "So the tree falls and lies as it's felled. Be thy bands loosed, O sleeper, long held In sweet sleep whose end is not sweet. Be the slackness girt and the softness quelled And the slowness fleet."  III.  Dim the changes of day to night, Of night scarce dark to day not bright. Still his road wound towards the right, Still he went, and still he went, Till one night he spied a light, In his discontent.  IV.  Oh a moon face in a shadowy place, And a light touch and a winsome grace, And a thrilling tender voice which says: "Safe from waters that seek the sea Cold waters by rugged ways Safe with me."  V.  Above his head a tangle glows of wine-red roses, blushes, snows, Closed buds and buds that unclose, Leaves, and moss, and prickles too; His hand shook as he plucked a rose, And the rose dropped dew.  source: public domain  I "By  her  h e a d lilies a n d  r o s e b u d s grow;  Heather Harty b.1976 J=  Voice  63-69, tempo commodo  |Jj>i>« T  -  i  -4^  5---  I  By her  7j p  Piano  air sfp err  head  i  r  ^  lil  j ni  • rf-t Pr  r con  J~TU  - A — ' J '  i|J  ^  } J ; H ies  LP and  ^•pr P_Pr p">  r . - R  /W.  poco erase, e/ poco accelr  rose  ^ 9  -  Prrf  The  grow.  lil - ies  droop,  will  the  rose  - buds  poco cresc. et poco accel.  f fr  a fem/ra  blow?  i  buds  will.  the rose - buds  blow?  dolce  * p P P_f r mf  r  T-T=  2007  102  12  mp  J The  sil  ver  8™-  >>M,Lr g.,r c.f  J —hang  slim.  •  -f  —p —  •  £  the  i  15  **  low;  head.  *  p.  \>v 1  Their stream  is  scan - ty.
