Program Notes

This stirring original composition by the former chief arranger for the United States Navy Band was written shortly after the tragic events of September 2001 and honors the resilient spirit of America. Conveying a sense of pride and strength, this is a truly inspiring work with real emotional impact.

- Program Note by publisher


Thine Alabaster Cities Gleam was inspired by a phrase from America, the Beautiful and is dedicated to the patriotic spirit of America. Following the September 11 terrorist attacks on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center, this work is a reverent musical memorial to those who lost their lives. It is a message of strength for all of us whose lives were changed by this event. And, finally, the piece reinforces the determination that the cities of America will endure and triumph and will indeed gleam once again.
