The Delian Suite was composed just
before and during the 2006 Delian Games, held annually in the month of
May by the Delian Society. All composer members of the DS, whether
professional or amateur, were eligible to participate in this
noncompetitive collaborative project. Each was asked to create a short
work of his/her choice based on the overall theme of "Spooks, Spirits,
and Sprites." It was understood in advance that the movements could be
performed individually or combined to form a suite, such that the
choice of movements and the order in which they are performed is left
entirely to the players (or, in the case of those who visit this web
page, to the listeners). All those contributing to the project display
a gold 2006 Delian Games medallion on their web pages in acknowledgment
of the Society's appreciation for their creative gifts.
We hope you enjoy our music, and that if you
or one of your colleagues or students performs our work, that you will
contact us at the e-mail address below with the news. If you are
interested in commissioning any of our composers for new works, feel
free to contact her/him directly. You may also post a message to
him/her by using the Society's e-mail link at the bottom of the Delian
Suite II web pages.
