"Homage to Normandy" is a tribute to all the soldiers who lost their lives during the Battle of Normandy in the Second World War. The first movement, 'Elegy: For All of the Fallen,' is a beautifully powerful chorale that builds to a glorious climax before calming again. The second movement, 'In Resolution: Toward the Final Victory,' captures the brute force of the battle and drives all the way to the end in this fitting homage.

With Heart and Voice by David Gillingham. For Concert Band (Piccolo, Flute 1/2, Oboe 1/2, Bassoon 1/2, Bb Clarinet 1, 2, 3, Bass Clarinet, Contrabass Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone, Bb Trumpet 1, 2, 3, F Horn 1/2, F Horn 3/4, Trombone 1/2, Bass Trombone, Euphonium, Tuba, Piano, Timpa). Band Music. Grade 4. Score only. Duration 9:00. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.05321). With Heart & Voice was commissioned by Apple Valley High School Bands, Scott A. Jones, director (Apple Valley, Minnesota), to commemorate the 25th year of existence of this high school. Apple Valley High School's strong commitment to the arts was a major factor in my decision to take on this commission. After visiting the school in December of 2000 and meeting many of the students, faculty, and administrators, I became greatly inspired.Thematically, the work is based on the Apple Valley High School Alma Mater, an old Spanish hymn which has made its way into most church hymnals under the name of "Come, Christians, Join to Sing." It is perhaps fate that this hymn, a particular favorite of mine, happens to be the tune used for the Alma Mater. Christian Henry Bateman wrote the words for the hymn in 1843 and the first verse contains the line, "Let all, with heart and voice, before his throne rejoice." Hence, the title, With Heart and Voice. What better way to celebrate 25 years of this great high school than with our "hearts" and "voices." The "voice" in this case is the music and the "heart" is the emotion that the music renders in celebration. Although the work is largely celebratory in nature, it begins with a feeling of reticence and apprehension, much like the beginnings of Apple Valley High School. It was at one time only an idea or perhaps only a sketch in the mind of the architect. Small fragments of the Alma Mater are heard in the opening moments of the piece. The piece gains momentum, texture and volume in this opening section culminating in a dramatic statement of the first four notes of the theme. A calmness follows and a lyrical flute solo enters. This new material represents the uniqueness of the "mission" of a new school which will have roots in academic excellence and commitment to the visual and performing arts. The euphonium echoes the flute and soon more instruments join in and the section culminates with a dramatic fanfare. This is followed by a transitional section with much dissonance and rhythmic activity, equated to the challenge of bringing life to this new school. A glorious statement of the Alma Mater follows signifying the dedication of Apple Valley High School, twenty five years ago. The ensuing section begins as a fugue with underlying unsettling rhythmic activity in the percussion. The obvious reference of this section is the challenge-maintaining the goals and mission of the high school. The section becomes frantic and desperate, but soon subsides into peacefulness. The peacefulness is stated by the marriage of the "Alma Mater " theme and the "Mission" theme. . .after all, for the High School to survive, it must never forget its mission. An extended finale follows which celebrates both themes in playful, joyful, and dramatic exuberance.

On the floor of the entrance to the cave has been constructed a mosaic of a sunflower, inscribed with the words (in Spanish) "He Turns Toward the Sun." Loyola began developing his Spiritual Exercises here, which comprise four weeks of retreat and meditation. It is a classical, and practical, manual of Western thinking and writing.- Reber Clark.

Chamber Symphony No. 2 for Bassoon (Bassoon Feature). By Daniel McCarthy. Arranged by A. Dancy. Chamber Ensemble. For Solo Bassoon, Chamber Winds & Percussion (solo bassoon, flute, oboe, soprano saxophone, clarinet in Bb, bass clarinet, bassoon, horn in F, percussion (maracas, temple blocks, suspended cymbal, tam tam, bongos, castanets, triangle), marimba (4.5-octave), double bass). Medium difficult. Score only. Duration 16:00. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.05861). Chamber Symphony No. 2 for Bassoon and Winds was commissioned for Barrick Stees by the Michigan State University Bands, John Whitwell, Conductor. This piece follows the format of McCarthy's Chamber Symphony (No. 1) for Marimba and Winds, a virtuosic composition for solo instrument and chamber ensemble that has more musically involved accompaniment than implied by the term "concerto."Daniel McCarthy met Barrick Stees as a colleague at the Interlochen Summer Arts Festival (Interlochen Arts Camp, Interlochen, Michigan) in the summer of 1995. Since that time, McCarthy and Stees have worked together on numerous recording and performance projects - most recently, the recording of another commissioned work of McCarthy's by Stees, All the West Was Moving (Centaur Records: Barrick Stees and The Arianna String Quartet).For Chamber Symphony No. 2, McCarthy prefers the multi-movement format, six movements of varying lengths. Similar to some of Beethoven's late string quartets, McCarthy uses two shorter movements as introductions to others, namely the two "Interludes." The outer two movements are programmatic, whereas the interior movements are much more classically conceived.Movement 1: "Stomp and Buc Dance"Having grown up in Northern Michigan, McCarthy has a special affinity for the autumn season. Several of his teachers from the Interlochen Academy (where McCarthy graduated in 1974) are avid hunters. The deer-hunting season for many in northern Michigan is sacred. One hears of the so-called "deer camps" where hunters have wild parties (far enough from their hunting sites as to not "spook" the animals).McCarthy imagines Deer, Buck, and Elk parties at the end of hunting season, when the animals, after another season of successfully avoiding the hunters' bullets and arrows, dance wildly around their own camp fires, drinking deer-beer and mocking the hunters in the dim fire light.Movement 2: "Interlude""Interlude" introduces a softer, darker, less humorous music than the first movement. It offers a transition to a much less programmatic third movement in comparison to the first.Movement 3: "Mechanique""Mechanique" is a study in angular intervals for the solo bassoon. The rhythmic animation in the solo with the motoric doublebass and marimba accompaniments give the music a mechanical sound that is (perhaps) associated with an etude.Movement 4: "Interlude: Creep"The second "Interlude," this time with the subtitle: "Creep" is inspired by the second movement of J. S. Bach's Suite No. 3 in D Major (Air on the G String). The inspiration for this interlude is textural: a long, sustained melody in the treble above a punctuated, quasi-jazz pizzicato bass and marimba bass line that "creeps" and crawls its way beneath the ensemble. It is the only movement without the bassoon solo.Movement 5: "Static"A somewhat improvisational, rhapsodic sounding piece, "Static" is a study in repeated notes and fast tonguing for the wind instruments. The "static" repetition of pitches creates a percussive effect that is juxtaposed with a mosaic of wide-interval motives.Movement 6: "Fire, Dance, and Wahbekanetta"This movement, like the first, is about wild-eyed, nocturnal parties in Michigan's northern wood. In 1969, the composer attended the National Music Camp as a trumpet player and later, the Interlochen Arts Academy from 1970-1974. He later joined the faculty of Interlochen Arts Camp in 1995. McCarthy was born very near Interlochen, in a small village of Onekoma on Portage Lake. The summer is the time for the composer to return to the land of his youth, a chance to escape the rigors of academe, to be with friends. Memories.

Chamber Symphony No. 3 for Clarinet. (Clarinet Feature). By Daniel McCarthy. For Solo Bb Clarinet & Chamber Ensemble (Solo Bb Clarinet, Flute, Oboe, Bb Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Bassoon, F Horn, Bb Trumpet, Trombone, Tuba, Percussion 1-2 (crotales, suspended cymbal, low tom, timbales, bongos, temple blocks, finger cymbals, maracas, timpani, shaker), Piano, Violin I, Violi). Medium difficult. Score only. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.08601). Chamber Symphony No. 3 was written for the Cleveland Chamber Symphony and clarinetist Kristina Belisle. This is the third work by McCarthy titled "Chamber Symphony" written for a soloist and chamber group. The term is used instead of "concerto" due to a more virtuosic approach to the ensemble writing so that ensemble and soloist are intimately involved. Chamber Symphony No. 1 for Marimba and Winds and Chamber Symphony No. 2for Bassoon and Winds are recorded on Klavier Records by the North Texas Wind Symphony conducted by Eugene Corporon. The six movements were written during a dark period of the composer's life involving several family deaths and deep personal struggle. The second movement, Holy Ghost, is a remembrance of McCarthy's mother, a strong woman of faith who died in the summer of 2002. A Voice in the Dark depicts the reality of living with the specter of those who have passed. TanzMusik, a lively dance movement, is perhaps a bit sarcastic. It is about trying to dance the lively dance in the midst of profound doubt and struggle.

Directed by David Gillingham and Nico Schuler, the ICNM is dedicated to the creation, performance, and research of new music in piblic schools, private schools and universities.In keeping with ICNM's mission, Awakenings exploits a 20th century tonal system not commonly found in the repertoire for younger bands: the octatonic collection. Also known as a "diminished" scale, it is a series f alternating whole and half steps. totaling eight pitches. Common in the music of Bartok, Stravinsky, , and Messiaen, as well as in jazz improvisation and film scores (including Danny Elfman), the appeal of an octatonic collection lies in its unusual combination of available sonorities.

Keep Silence by David Gillingham. For Concert Band (Piccolo, Flute 1/2, Oboe 1/2, Bassoon 1/2, Bb Clarinet 1, Bb Clarinet 2/3, Bass Clarinet, Eb Alto Saxophone 1/2, Bb Tenor Saxophone, Eb Baritone Saxophone, Bb Trumpet 1, Bb Trumpet 2/3, F Horn 1/2, F Horn 3/4, Trombone 1, Trombone 2, Bass Trombone, Euphon). Maestro Band Series. Grade 4. Score only. Duration 8:00. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.09631). "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.The work begins mysteriously with ascending and descending D-Aeolian (natural minor) lines in the clarinet which give way to the hymn tune presented by solo flute, solo muted trumpet, and bells. The modal passages eventually lead to a transition leading to a presentation of the hymn by the trombone choir accompanied by anxious sixteenths in the flutes, clarinets and keyboard percussion which are based on motivic material from the hymn tune. The timpani interjects some dramatic statements between phrases. This leads to a rather aggressive statement by the brass which doubles each note of the opening motive of the hymn and diminishes the note values to sixteenths. This leads joyously to G-flat major. The volume dramatically decreases and steady sixteenths in the bells and vibraphone accompany the hymn tune played by solo flute with an obligato by solo oboe. The harmony of the hymn tune changes significantly in this presentation, creating a sort of heavenly atmosphere. The aggressive sixteenth notes of the previous transitional section return quite suddenly and grow into fanfare-like majesty and segue into a presentation of the hymn that is predominantly in C-major. The section grows to a pinnacle, modulates to F-minor, and returns to mysteriousness. Muted trumpets present the aggressive transition material in ethereal fashion along with the vibraphone while the low brass and woodwinds play the hymn tune in plaintive somberness. At the end of the tune, the remaining brass burst forth with the transition material and lead to one final statement of the penultimate phrase of the hymn in F-major. A coda follows with brass and woodwinds playing the first and second phrases of the hymn. The brass then begin a sort of benediction loosely based on the penultimate phrase of the hymn followed by euphonium solo on the final phrase, followed by muted trumpet on the second phrase and ending with alto saxophone on the first phrase--the reverse order signifying a return to the reverence of the beginning.

Providence by David Gillingham. For Concert Band (Piccolo, Flute 1, Flute 2, Oboe 1/2, Bassoon 1/2, Bb Clarinet 1, Bb Clarinet 2, Bb Clarinet 3, Bass Clarinet, Eb Contrabass Clarinet, Alto Saxophone 1/2, Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone, Bb Trumpet 1, Bb Trumpet 2, Bb Trumpet 3, Horn 1/2, Horn 3/4, Tr). Grade 5. Score only. Duration 9:50. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.09961). Providence was commissioned by the Michigan State University Bands, John Whitwell, conductor. The work was originally to be in honor of the retirement of long time Theory Professor, Dr. Ted Johnson. Unfortunately, Dr. Johnson passed away on April 21, 2003, before any sketches of the new work had begun. I had spoke with Dr. Johnson some months before his death about the work that would be in his honor, asking him what kind of work he thought I should write. His response was basically to leave the creative endeavor in my hands as he knew and admired my music. He did add, however, that he was a bit old fashioned and had an affinity for the dramatic music of the Romantic period, especially the soaring horn parts written by Richard Strauss. As it turns out, I have featured the horn section in this work.Dr. Johnson touched a multitude of lives during his career. I was but one of hundreds of graduate students that was positively touched by his humanity and superb teaching skills. I will be eternally grateful, as will so many others. Richard Blatti, Associate Director of Bands at The Ohio State University sums up his feelings for Dr. Johnson as follows:"...it's more than theoretical concepts or analytical techniques that you taught me. You gave me such inspiration, a renewed love for learning, a fresh approach to problem-solving. . .and the greatest gift of all. . .you taught me how to teach."Dr. Johnson lived an extraordinary life and had such a major influence on so many other lives. His wonderful life and the gifts that he passed on were no accident. John Whitwell, Director of Bands at Michigan State University, has told me that such things happen because of "divine guidance" or "providence". This is the derivation for the title of the work.Ted Johnson authored two books, which were analyses of J. S. Bach's Two-Part and Three-Part Inventions. We all knew how much he revered the work of Bach. Three works by J. S. Bach were performed at his memorial service on April 24, 2003. One of these works, the aria Bist du bei mir ("Stay Thou Nearby"), is perhaps one of Bach's most beloved melodies. I chose this work to be the centerpiece for all the melodic material in Providence.The work begins in a sort of questioning fashion, as a man questions the meaning of his own life. The oboe sings the first four notes of the aria (Bist du bei mir) with an octave displacement of the fourth note. This motive is heard throughout the piece. The mystery and questioning grows and segues into a murmur by clarinets and marimba over which a can ensues on motives derived from the aria. At the conclusion of the canon, low brass state the beginning of the aria and a fugato on the first four notes of the aria follows. The fugato concludes with dissonant confusion but resolves into consonance and leads to a lovely statement by solo flute accompanied by harp. The melodic material for the flute solo is new and its lyrical and expressive quality alludes to spirituality and the meaning of life that we all seek. Turmoil follows as if to remind us of the ultimate reality of the tribulations of life. Counterpoint and dissonance abound in this section along with a pounding solo by timpani leading to a dark march on the first three notes of the aria. The march grows incessantly and finally leads to a joyous entrance of the aria theme by the horns and is now joined by the flute solo heard earlier, this time in the low brass. Woodwinds accompany on a sort of ostinato fashioned from aria motives. The section affirms that providence does, in fact, exist in our lives. A quiet benediction brings the work to closure.- DRG.

For Concert Band (Piccolo, Flute 1, Flute 2, Oboe 1, Oboe 2, Bassoon 1, Bassoon 2, Eb Clarinet, Bb Clarinet 1, Bb Clarinet 2, Bb Clarinet 3, Alto Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Alto Saxophone 1, Alto Saxophone 2, Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone, Cornet 1, Cornet 2, Cornet 3,). Band Music. Grade 5. Score only. Duration 12:00. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.S11021). British composer Gordon Jacob ranks as one of the world's foremost contributors to the wind ensemble repertoire, with hundreds of works for military band as well as other types of musical groups. He earned his Doctor of Music degree and also taught counterpoint, orchestration and composition for 40 years at the Royal College of Music. He wrote band works along the lines of Gustav Holst and his good friend Vaughan Williams - not imitating their style but, as he said, "striving to come near to their spirit of adventure and independence of thought" in his own work.This suite was originally written for Brass Band in 1955 and was arranged for symphonic band in 1979. It has three movements, opening with a lighthearted March, followed by a subdued and tranquil movement entitled "Solemn Music." The suite closes with a symphonic march, which showcases the power of the wind ensemble.

Symphony AD 78 by Gordon Jacob (1895-1986). For Concert Band (Piccolo, 1st Flute, 2nd Flute, Oboe 1/2, Bassoon 1/2, Eb Clarinet, 1st Bb Clarinet, 2nd Bb Clarinet, 3rd Bb Clarinet, Eb Alto Clarinet, Bb Bass Clarinet, Eb Alto Saxophone 1/2, Bb Tenor Saxophone, Eb Baritone Saxophone, 1st Bb Cornet, 2nd/3rd Bb Cornet, 1). Band Music. Grade 5. Score only. Duration 15:30. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.S11158). With this Symphony, Gordon Jacob proclaims his absolute mastery of idiom and instrumentation with a triumphant rejoicing. Written in 1978 as a commission from Arthur Doyle (hence the "AD" in the title, a typical piece of Jacob wit), it lay virtually unplayed save for the efforts of his Estate, Troy Peterson and Geoffrey Brand and CBDNA (College Band Directors Association, USA), who between them ensured that it was professionally recorded in 1994 and published in 1995.There is little point in indulging in semantics as to whether the piece is a Symphony. It is Jacob's approach to his tuneful, folk-based material which is symphonic: weighty in exposition and development, sonorous and expressive in the slow movement, with a scherzo-like last movement and a giocoso coda.After a brilliant opening fanfare, the quick triple-meter first theme (Allegro Risoluto) is introduced on clarinets, punctuated with brass. It is soon followed by a contrasting melody for saxophone. In all this material the interval of a 4th is prominent, and throughout the work the 4th and 7th are important. Perhaps it is the frequent use of the 7th which gives a feeling of restlessness without resolution which pervades this movement as the themes are dissected and developed.The second movement follows directly after a horn bridge. Still the melody outlines the 7th and the ear is not satisfied until the full band (with organ), comes to rest in Bb major. This point of repose and the magic pianissimo which follows shortly after when the slow theme is re-stated, are the apex of the Symphony's construction.Soon, however, we are transported, via a fanfare, into a helter-skelter 9/8 romp: rustic, English, and almost vulgar, this theme is thrown around the group before exploding into a boisterous 2/4 coda.

The Chorale-Prelude "O Mensch, Bewein' Dein' Sunde Gross" is taken from Bach's 'Orgelbuchlein' collection. Grainger created the setting between 1937 and 1942. While not unusual today, his beautiful realization of the ornamentation was revolutionary in the 1940s.
