Program Notes

You'll be surprised to know that this great sounding work uses only six notes in all instruments, with the exception of the clarinets, which also use a low written B to involve the right hand. The piece has a Renaissance quality to it and includes a middle processional theme (at the same tempo) to work on legato playing.

Courtly Dance and Procession was commissioned by the Haycock Elementary Beginning Band, McClean, Virginia, Brand Zimmerman and Dan Hastings, directors.
