Program Notes

The Greek word hypernikon roughly translates as "more than conquerors," the motto of Gordon College in Wenham, Massachusetts, the commissioner of this piece. The work is inspired by David Rox’s very own name the first two letters of his name, D and A, sets the first theme is in D major, with these notes being the tonic and dominant of the scale.

After the stately intrada, the tempo accelerates and the festive feel of the march emerges. The trio melody serves as a beautiful contrast before finally ending with the opening theme in a grand tutti.

- Program Note from publisher


Commissioned by Gordon College Department of Music and Gordon College Friends of Music (USA) in honor of Dr. David Rox's retirement as director of bands.
