Commissioned by the California Band Directors Association for the 2007 California All-State Middle School Honors Band

-Program Note by score


This short three-movement work paints a picture of one of the most beautiful and historically rich countries in the world. The first movement, This Proud People, quotes bits of Scotland the Brave, the unofficial anthem of Scotland, before introducing the sounds of a traditional pipe and drum band. The second movement, The South of Skye, pays tribute to countless quiet sandy beaches and small islands. The final movement,Glasgow, the West End, salutes this culturally rich area with a wild fiery jig that continues to accelerate to a powerful conclusion.
