From the composer: "Canzona III (2013) is based primarily upon a mixed mode that is a cross between the Lydian and Mixolydian modes (C–D–E–F#–G–A–Bb). In the manner of instrumental canzoni of the late 16th century, the work is in several sections, with thematic connections. The opening section pursues a two-voice contrapuntal treatment of a typical canzona rhythm, though with an added syncopation. The second section is quiet and very slow, in the manner of Girolamo Frescobaldi’s elevation toccatas: filled with long suspensions and resolutions. The final section is a joyful rondeau, which moves from a pure C major to the mixed mode again."
