Program Notes

Originally written for SATB Choir, this captivating, chorale-like piece showcases the band’s colors and expressive qualities – sure to become a favorite for ensemble and audience member alike,

Goodnight, Goodnight was written for the Bethel College Wind Ensemble, Timothy Shade, conductor. Here is the poem that inspired this work:

Goodnight, Goodnight
by Ashley Danyew

Sun sets low beneath the sky
Leaves all in golden state
Stars glow at edge of twilight
And here I stay, your words await

Goodnight, Goodnight

Sky a shade of midnight blue
Moon in its glowing fate
The world at peace is a calming view
And here I stay, your words await

Goodnight, Goodnight

Distance leaves us far apart
So at midnight if I may
Wish upon the brightest star
And hear your voice so softly say

Goodnight, Goodnight
