Composer's Note

The idea for the genesis of this work, and indeed its title and individual movements, came after visiting an exhibition at the British Museum entitled Moctezuma –Aztec Ruler. The exhibition traced the events following the election in 1502 of Moctezuma as Supreme Ruler of the Aztecs, and the subsequent invasion of 1519 by a Spanish expedition led by Hermán Cortés – an event that was to eventually lead to the demise of the Aztec civilisation.

Part of the exhibition explored the role that music and dance played in Aztec life. The primitive recorder together with trumpets and drums, were used as an important part of the formal ritual ceremonies (including, rather gruesomely, human sacrifice) that took place to appease the many Gods which the Aztecs worshipped, as well as for other, more informal, occasions in their social and cultural life.

I have tried to reflect some of these highly contrasting and dramatic ideas in this four movement work.
