Program Notes

1861 is a lyric hymn-fantasia for concert band, accessible to all levels of high school ensembles, and based on the beautiful 19th-century Anglican Hymn "Lead Me, Lord" (written in 1861 by Charles Sebastian Wesley). I was very attracted to that work's gorgeous line above biting harmonies and striking counterpoint, so the hymn itself provides the work's pillars: first presented soloistically, then with dramatic full-band tutti, and finally through evocative humming—all framed by choral textures and colorful improvisitory accompaniment. The work is dedicated to the commissioner, Amy M. Knopps and Center High School of Kansas City, Missouri.
