How do composers take materials at hand to fashion something new? Whether borrowed or stolen, for fun or propaganda–or desperate when deadlines loom–composers exploit existing musical resources. By recycling tunes and texts, plainchant, hymns, and drinking songs are re-purposed in new forms with fresh harmony. Featuring the winner of our 5th New Voices Competition.
