Program Notes

A subtle work for wind band that features slowly shifting curtains of sound and optional harp and string bass parts that can further enhance the sound palette. The piece uses moments of silence and slowly evolving melodic lines to describe the movement from this dimension to the next.

- Program Note by publisher for full band edition


Based on a poem by the composer, this emotionally charged work is an elegy in loving memory of the composer's friend, Jacob Nance. According to the composer's program notes, "The poem describes a loved one going on a journey, and there are times when they take the journey alone. Regardless of the journey, they are never far away. The piece reflects this and uses moments of silent and slow melodic lines to describe this journey and convey the meaning of the poem in a way that only music can."

The last line of the poem reads, "I know it's not goodbye, because I know you are just beyond the curtain in the sky."

In loving memory of Jacob Nance.
