  • Holy Roller - Libby Larsen

    901 views 1 year ago
    "Holy Roller" (1997) by Libby Larsen, performed by Ava Oaxaca (saxophone) and Bora Lee (piano) on a recital 1/21/17.

    'Holy Roller' is inspired by the Los Angeles revival meetings of 1906-1909, during which the congregation were overcome by episodes of dancing, and rolling on the floor while speaking in tongues (among other eccentricities). The piece mimics the inflections of the preacher's sermon, while keeping with an air of excitement throughout and captivating the audience's attention as if the notes were the preacher's words themselves.
