Program Notes

The Witch and the Saint is a programmatic ten-minute tone poem for symphonic band in one movement that is constructed in five distinct sections to tell the story of the lives of Helena and Sibylla, twin sisters born in Germany in 1588. Starting out with a Gregorian chant-type motif, Reineke uses all manner of musical sorcery to represent the turbulent lives of these vastly misunderstood women.

- Program Note by Steven Reineke

Steven Reineke’s compositions never fail to portray riveting legends and stories to audiences of all ages. In this edition, Matt Conaway has adapted one of Steven’s more unique settings into an accessible work for younger bands. Without sacrificing the original storyline or any melodic material, this captivating arrangement provides a magnificent centerpiece to any concert or festival program. This poignant story of misunderstood twin sisters is both powerful and sensitive, and is not to be missed.
