Celebrations: Nimbus and the Sun God (1978)

Ruth Lomon

2 Harps

This work for two harps was written in Taos, New Mexico, where Ruth Lomon was a fellow at the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation. Its cross-cultural nature is evident tonally in the clusters of quarter-tone tunings as well as in the descriptive headings: Aura, Chants, Reflections of the Eye, A Haunt, Sun Dance, Thunderhead, and Rainbow Spectrum.
