Program Notes

And the Heart Replies was commissioned by the Indianapolis Symphonic Band, Indianapolis, Indiana, to honor of their late director, Mr. Robert Phillips.

The title is based on the following excerpt from William Cowper's (1731-1800) Winter Walk at Noon:

There is in souls a sympathy with sounds;
And as the mind is pitched the ear is pleased
With melting airs or martial, brisk, or grave:
Some chord in unison with what we hear
Is touched within us, and the heart replies.

This chorale-style work features the opening statement by the brass choir, followed by develoent of chorale fragments and the secondary theme by the woodwinds. After further thematic development by the percussion choir and a re-entry by the brasses, the piece ends with a final statement of the opening chorale.
