Program Notes

A beautiful, rich-textured, harmonically subtle expressive work in slow tempo, superbly scored. The opening section is scored for brass alone, beginning with a soft chorale-like phrase. This leads to another chorale phrase, more dramatic in character, with abrupt change from soft to loud, gradually fading into a quiet cadence form which the woodwinds emerge. The rest f the work deals with these ideas, reaching an intense climax for full band with brass in chorale style and woodwinds playing embroidery. The mood subsides to one of hushed mystery, in transparent scoring.
