Program Notes

Over the years, many people have asked me about the origin of this work. Hymn of St. James is a composition for band based on the hymn Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence, which is set to a traditional 17th century French carol melody. I was raised in the Episcopal Church and this was one of a very few hymns that fascinated me from a very early age. The melody always haunted me and, having the opportunity to write a piece completely unfettered by money or time constraints, I decided to utilize this childhood memory.
