Program Notes

This work was commissioned by the University of Missouri-Columbia Music Department to honor the inaugural season of Tom O'Neal as their director of bands. Stamp notes that this piece:

"Was written in the summer of 2001 while I was 'on vacation' in the state of Maine. I have known Tom since the summer of 1983, and he have remained the best of friends since that time. Tom is one of those friends who, no matter how long it has been since we've seen each other, when we meet, we pick right up where we left off. The work was a labor of love as I tried to write a slow, mostly quiet work to reflect the importance of friendships through the best and worst of times. On its premiere, Tom viewed the work more programmatically as a descriptive of the life of our friendship. The work is meant to be reflective and honest.

In This Hid Clearing continues a twentieth-century tradition of single-movement, lyrical and reflective works composed for bands. As a contemporary, impressionist, lyrical work, Stamp's In This Hid Clearing differs from his usual intensely energetic contrapunctal style as manifested in his well-known Gavorkna Fanfare.
