Program Notes

Armistice was written as part of a 1991 project featuring a collection of military-themed music. Originally scored for orchestra and titled Home Coming, the music was intended to convey the emotions of military troops triumphantly returning to grateful crowds across the nation following years in the battlefields of distant countries. Armistice begins with subdued fanfares and flourishes before settling into a marching theme played by solo woodwinds. Later, alternating between fanfares and flourishes, the marching theme is restated, this time in the form of a solemn hymn, which builds into a joyful celebration commemorating the triumphant end to a terrible world conflict.
