Garrop's brass quintet describes the daily journey of the sun god, Helios, as he crosses the sky, then sleeps through the night in a golden boat which carries him back to the beginning. As such, her soundscape "...begins with a fast and fiery sunrise and ends in a serene, sunset mood." Helios was commissioned by the Gaudete Brass Quintet, who also recorded the work on Chicago Moves (Cedille label). For advanced performers. Dur.: 4'30"
