Program Notes

Chorale and Blaspheme was written during the summer of 2008 as a commission for the United States Naval Academy Band, LCDR Brian O. Walden, conductor.

The first movement consists of a chorale in which three-note melodic fragments are passed between a solo horn and saxophone before being developed by the entire ensemble. The second movement is an exploration of a violent and explosive motive that attempts to expand the conventionally accepted ranges and capabilities associated with the wind ensemble.
