Program Notes

Keep Silence is a fantasy for band to the tune known as Picardy, a French carol melody. The tune is found in most Protestant hymnals with the words taken from the 4th century liturgy of St. James. The fluctuation between minor and major tonality and the fluctuation between awe and wonder reflected by the words make this hymn particularly attractive. The fantasy attempts to show a broad range of mood from wonder and mysteriousness to awe and celebration.
