Program Notes

The title is derived from the old French word “estampir”, which means to re-sound. The “estampie” of the 13th and 14th centuries repeated every section. Here, the repetition (re-sounding) is of notes.

An excellent, accessible program opener or closer by noted composer McBeth, Estampie is percussive and staccato in nature, enhanced by jarring, metallic brake drums in the percussion section and bright, strident brass figures.

Commissioned by and dedicated to the Deer Path Junior High School Band, Heather Pettit, director, of Lake Forest Illinois.
