Program Notes

Jared Spears has here written another wonderfully exciting, creative, and very approachable work for young bands that works well for almost any combination of wind and percussion instruments. The title comes from the main rhythmic motif of the piece, as if the word Praises! were spoken emphatically. This is a finely crafted work.
