Program Notes

Fanfares and Alleluias was commissioned by the Fort Walton Beach (Florida) High School Band, and its conductor, Mr. Ernest Hebson, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the opening of that high school. The premiere was conducted by the composer in May 1994. The composer writes the following about the work:

This was intended to be a musical celebration for a great school and for a wonderful high school band. It is not the easiest piece to play, because Mr. Hebson wanted to be sure that I challenged every player in the ensemble.
The work is rather rhapsodic in nature. Beginning with the opening fanfare, it soon breaks into a more contrapuntal, choral-style alleluia. Both of these themes are then treated to several different settings before the fanfare theme wins out in the end. The fanfare is repeated several times towards the end of the work, each time slower and more dramatically.
