New Jersey Camp Meeting: A Bloomfield Sabbath (Flute/Piccolo and Piano)
Composer: Somers, Paul
New Jersey Camp Meeting: A Bloomfield Sabbath (Flute Doubling Piccolo and Piano) By Paul Mack Somers (b.1942.) Published by Maurice River Press, Distributed by Theodore Presser Company.
Somers has crafted this work with inspiration from two 19th century composers with New Jersey connections. The familiar hymn tunes of William Bradbury, often sung at camp meetings, can be heard above a “sound wash” not unlike that used by Charles Ives. The work was written for and premiered by the composer's wife, flutist Jan Somers.
