Program Notes

Howard Hanson originally wrote his March Carillon for piano in 1920, dedicating it to his friend, organist Leo Sowerby. Twenty years later it was set for band by Erik Leidzén, contributor of so many outstanding transcriptions to the band repertoire. The chiming effects illustrate the composer's childhood memories of church bells.
