Program Notes

This macabre work for concert band musically illustrates the time of night when dark forces gather to celebrate and do their mischief. Four connected quarters of the piece are all announced by "Big Ben" chime statements, and include "The Gathering", "Spells and Incantations", "The Witches' Dance", and "The Witches' Flight". The composer's talent for creating dramatic and exciting music is clearly displayed in this bewitching new concert band work.
