Program Notes

An expressive ballad-like piece, skillfully scored to bring out the beautiful sonorities of the band. Ideal for teaching phrasing, tone control, quality of sound, and well suited for contest warm-up.

Romanesque was commissioned by and is dedicated to Josef Crist and the Princeton Junior High School Concert Band, Princeton City School District, Ohio.

- Program Note from publisher (for 1982 edition)


The James Swearingen classic Romanesque is a wonderful example of lyrical writing at its absolute finest. Your musicians will marvel at the opportunity to perform music that sounds above grade level, yet is highly accessible in every way possible. Musical lines that reach out with emotion, beautiful sounding chords, and great scoring techniques all combine to present the ultimate experience of creating artistry and beauty through the precious gift of music.
