Program Notes

Slow and melodic, a flute solo begins this work, with individual instruments gradually joining in. A reflective and contemplative piece that's musical and mature, interesting for a work at this level. Following a passage of full ensemble, the piece then concludes with a soft, quiet ending.

-Program note by publisher


Jessie’s Well is a simple story that comes from the pure heart of a young child, immersed in her love for her daddy and overjoyed at the peace he has found in life. The melody represents Jessie’s story, incomplete at times, like the simple wandering of a child.

- Program note by California State University, Fresno, Symphonic Band
