Program Notes

Commissioned by the Region II, Pennsylvania Music Educators Association for their 1967 Spring Band Festival - Wililam Mills, host. The premiere was by Paul Dunlap, then conductor of the Penn State Blue Band.

The two movements are unified by the modal chorale theme, which is first presented by the clarinets. The theme is transformed as it moves through the chorale section and later makes a final appearance in the toccata in combination with the toccata theme. The harmonic structure throughout is essentially quartal rather than triadic.
