Eugene Friesen, Paul Halley , Jon Suters, Nick Halley, a young Paul Halley
     

"Paul Halley is an immensely creative musician who gathers inspiration from wherever the wind blows. 'Angel on a Stone Wall' is both beautiful and inspiring, enlightening and free." - Soundwaves

"The melodies Paul Halley wrote for his solo piano/pipe organ LP are so tuneful Barry Manilow would become an axe murderer just for the chance to say ‘I wrote them’." - The Cincinnati Enquirer

PEL7005

Ensemble Version for piano, soprano sax, keyboard, and rhythm section

Level: Difficult

 

NEW!

The original ensemble version of this work was intended for release on the 1991 album, 'Angel On A Stone Wall', featuring ten new Paul Halley compositions. However, Paul Winter needed additonal material for The Paul Winter Consort recording, 'Earth: Voices of a Planet', so the piece premiered on that album instead. In 1992, Paul Halley's "Appalachian Morning" was licensed for arrangement to John Williams and The Boston Pops Orchestra (Patrick Williams, arranger) for release on "The Green Album", and is often played at Boston Pops July 4th celebrations to date.

'Appalachian Morning' is frequently licensed for arrangement to marching bands and bugle corps, and is available in a percussion ensemble arrangement at Tapspace.com. For Permission to Arrange licensing information, see Pelagosmusic LICENSING or go directly to our arrangements administrator, www.tresonamusic.com.

Says one listener: "I heard this piece watching Aimachi Winter Guard several years ago...I thought this was a Pat Metheny composition; it has the movement I associate with Pat Metheny's music...Finally, I stand corrected, and finally learned who wrote this beautiful piece." -oldschooldrumcorps (youtube)

Cathedral Pines
by Eugene Friesen and Paul Halley

3'35”

List: $20.00

LL102

Duet for Cello and Organ

Level: Difficult

The exclusively authorized Pelagosmusic publication of this work by Eugene Friesen and Paul Halley from their 'New Friend' recording of 1985, a series of keyboard and cello improvisations recorded in The Cathedral of St. John The Divine, New York. A delightful interplay between two consummate players.

 "Cathedral Pines" is a minor masterpiece in terms of its lyrical beauty and soaring cello work by Friesen, perfectly matched note-for-note by Halley's uncanny choices of voice leading, harmonies, and organ voicing. More than once I've simply replayed this track time and again, wallowing in its mellow, gentle beauty. It is truly one of the finest things these two have ever done." - Bob Zeidler, Listmania

Duet for Cello and Piano

Level: Difficult

The exclusively authorized Pelagosmusic publication of this work by Eugene Friesen and Paul Halley from their 'New Friend' recording circa 1985, a series of keyboard and cello improvisations recorded in The Cathedral of St. John The Divine, New York. A delightful interplay between two consummate players.

"I've had the pleasure of seeing Eugene Friesen and Paul Halley perform together many times, and can vouch for the fact that their "act" is fully-improvised (at times, very much to my wonderment). These two instrumentalsists feed off each other in a way tha t borders on psychic connection, so well-formed and interconnected are their musical thoughts and threads." - Bob Zeidler, Listmania..

Remembering You
by Eugene Friesen and Paul Halley

4'00”

List: $20.00

LL104

Duet for Cello and Piano
with Organ (optional)

Level: Difficult

The exclusively authorized Pelagosmusic publication of this work by Eugene Friesen and Paul Halley, created for Eugene's ensemble recording "Arms Around You" circa 1989. Although many of the works on the CD included ensemble players, 'Remembering You', is a simpler, more poignant statement for cello, piano, and organ. Deciated to Friesen's father.

"Eugene Friesen brings the most exquisite melancholy into the life of his cello." R.Julian.

"The duets of Eugene Friesen and Paul Halley can be playful or ruminative or some of both. All are lyrical, some unabashedly so." - Bob Zeidler, Listmania.
