Program Notes

This gorgeous piece, whose title is taken from Psalm 30:4-5, offers a wonderful opportunity for the band to explore various colors, sounds and harmonies. A strong emphasis on style and dynamic contrast is vital in capturing the character of the music, in which expressive demands abound.

"...Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning." This beautiful verse is the center of this haunting work dedicated to a vibrant young lady whose life ended all too soon. While not technically difficult, the potential for musical expression and maturity is vast.
