MODAL MINIATURES is a suite of three short movements of different moods written in the Phrygian mode instead of the traditional major or minor scale. Each movement is based on the chorale-like melody of the first movement. The second movement is a variation of this melody, and the third movement uses the theme in inversion as an ostinato. Dr. Whear wrote MODAL MINIATURES especially for the younger bands so they may experience playing a contemporary work with an authentic scoring in the modal style.
