Program Notes

The majestic opening of this regal work gives way to a driving energy that continues throughout. As is his signature with any work for concert band, Gilroy makes great use of the percussion section, most notably the mallet percussion. This composition works best with nine percussionists but can be performed with eight or fewer if need be.
