Program Notes

Exultate (ex-ull-TAH-tay) was commissioned in July of 2001 by Dr. Edward Kocher, Dean of Duquesne University's School of Music in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This piece was to serve as their finale of the presidential installation ceremonies for incoming university president, Dr. Charles Dougherty. The premiere performance was conducted by Dr. Robert Cameron, Director of Bands at Duquesne University.

Exultate was written to be music for a celebration. It introduces nine melodic themes throughout the piece. Eight of those nine recur in either different chordal structures or as part of a layered thematic montage. These themes gain a sense of excitement each time they recur until the halftime section, when the slow and powerful chorale offers a break from the fast pace. Following the chorale's eight measures, the pace and dynamics are taken to a new level, pushing the piece to its climactic ending.
