Program Notes

An ambitious composition based on an ancient psalm-chant that the composer heard sung by a group of monks in Europe. Elements from the chant are used in a variety of ways creating a wide range of textures and moods until the chant reappears at the end of the piece scored for the full ensemble.

Palimpsest was commissioned by the Joliet College Community Band, Joliet, Illinois, and dedicated to their director, Jerry Lewis, in gratitude and appreciation for thirty-six years of service to Joliet Junior College and the Joliet College Band.
