Program Notes

Morning Song features the horn quartet mostly in a soloistic role -- indeed there is an accompanied cadenza towards the end of the piece -- but there are moments where the horns assume their conventional concert band role as harmonic support or playing the counter melody. This expressive composition shows all the versatility of the horn quartet and gives them the chance to be in the spotlight.

- Program Note by publisher

Commissioned by Bowling Green University Symphonic Band, Dr. Bruce Moss, conductor, the College of Musical Arts, Kappa Kappa Psi and Tau Beta Sigma in memory of Prof. Herbert Spencer.
