Program Notes

A dramatic ballad with deep and rich sonorities, Eternal Hope was written simply as a prayer for peace. Weaving throughout the choirs of instruments, the flowing melodies and soaring countermelodies build into a dramatic climax. This emotional composition is David Shaffer at his very best.

Eternal Hope was commissioned by and is dedicted to the South East Iowa Bandmaster's. It was premiered on January 19, 2008, David Shaffer, conducting.
