Program Notes

From the Score:
Lullabye is a waltz for concert band. The melody, to me, suggests the comforting and wandering qualities inherent in most bedtime songs, along with an almost melancholy, bitter-sweet sentiment.

From the Grand Mesa Website:
Nearly all sections of the band get to perform the singing melody in this heartfelt waltz for concert band. Beautiful in its simplicity, this is one of the most gorgeous tunes yet from the pen of a young writer much noted for the lyricism of his melodies. It unfolds from a unison, unaccompanied clarinet melody, through a series of key changes, to an expansive moment of tutti high drama that is breathtaking in its beauty, and finally going to sleep with a melancholy statement from the percussion and a whispered "shhh" from the wind players. Gorgeous!
