Tales of the Donner Expedition composed by Daniel McCarthy. Chamber Ensemble. For Woodwind Quintet. flute, Bb clarinet, oboe, bassoon, horn. Chamber Music. Medium difficult. Score and parts. Duration 12. 00. Published by C. Alan Publications. CN.13270. McCarthy's virtuosically programmatic work for woodwind quintet tell the tragic tale of hardship experienced by the Donner party in their journey from Illinois to California. In the year 1846, many families traveled west to California in search of a new life. George Donner, a German immigrant, organized one such expedition of 89 men, women, and children leaving Springfield, Illinois on April 16, 1846. The Donner party was to follow the California Trail nearly 2,000 miles across unpopulated prairies, up endless rivers, and through the Rocky Mountains over the Continental Divide. The more prudent immigrants swung north through present-day Idaho, though that was the longer way west. But the Donner Party, braver or more foolish than the rest, chose an untried route that would shorten the distance. They struggled through shortening days and chilling nights, and reached the brink of their destination, the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada. Then disaster struck. For thirty years, the blizzard snows of winter had never came to the Sierra Nevada until the middle of November. In 1846, the blizzard came early for the first time in memory. Behind the Donner Party lay hundreds of miles of wilderness, seventy miles ahead lay California. in between, the canyons were buried in snow that soon piled thirty feet deep. They had food for a month, but it would be seven months before the snow thawed, and relief was far away. What followed is an unforgettable story of terrible hardship and awesome courage. the suffering of men, women, and children, starvation, cannibalism, and madness. It is the story of humankind in their bleakest hour--a story that increases the understanding of what kind of people made this nation and the full, immeasurable price they paid.

In die jaar 1846, het baie families gereis na California in soek van 'n nuwe lewe. George Donner, 'n Duitse immigrant, georganiseerde een so ekspedisie van 89 mans, vroue en kinders verlaat Springfield, Illinois op April 16, 1846. Die Donner Party was die Kalifornië roete te volg byna 2000 myl oor onbevolk prairies, eindelose riviere, en deur die Rotsgebergte oor die kontinentale skeiding. Die meer omsigtige immigrante noord swaai deur hedendaagse Idaho, maar dit was die langer pad weste. Maar die Donner Party, dapperder of meer dwase as die res, verkies om 'n onbeproefde roete wat die afstand verkort. Hulle het gesukkel om deur te verkort dae en koue nagte, en die rand van hulle bestemming bereik, die oostelike helling van die Sierra Nevada. Dan ramp. Vir dertig jaar het die blizzard sneeu van die winter het nog nooit aan die Sierra Nevada gekom tot die middel van November. In 1846, die blizzard het vroeg vir die eerste keer in die geheue. Agter die Donner Party lê honderde kilometers van die woestyn, sewentig myl voorlê Kalifornië. tussen, was die canyons begrawe in die sneeu wat binnekort opgestapel dertig meter diep.

Wat gevolg is 'n onvergeetlike verhaal van verskriklike swaarkry en ontsagwekkende moed. die lyding van mans, vroue en kinders, hongersnood, kannibalisme en onverstandigheid. Dit is die verhaal van die mensdom in hul bleakest uur - 'n storie wat verhoog die begrip van watter soort mense hierdie nasie en die volle, onmeetbare prys wat hulle betaal het.
