The title of Majestica is taken from the word majestic which means having or displaying great dignity or nobility and was inspired by Psalm 8:9. It was composed for the 8th grade band members of the Madison County Central School Band 2006-2007 as an expression of my appreciation for their encouragement and positive impact in my life. It is my hope that Majestica will provide students with a song that they will enjoy learning to play and provide other music educators with a teaching tool that can be used in helping to motivate and encourage their students.

March of the Aliens is a composition that should be approached with a sense of fun. The mood changes can depict various characters if one wants to add to the performance visually. The use of chromatics gives the piece an eerie feeling that suggests the possible invasion by aliens from another world. A wonderful novelty selection!

The Voice on the Mountain was written for Mike Veak, a band director who dedicated 30 years of his life to teaching instrumental music in Lincoln, Nebraska. Nolan Schmit begins the piece with a flute solo representing a solitary voice on a mountain. The voice begins to build in strength and intensity as it travels down the mountain, is heard by others and is communicated to distant lands. This is a musical metaphor for a teacher - a solitary voice - who impacts generations of students. This is really a tribute to all band directors. A dramatic setting with an explosive ending.

Brilliant, clever and brimming with excitement, another ingenious Himes masterpiece! The objective of Thingamajig is to create a whimsical contraption of sound in the same spirit as the late Rube Goldberg, which appeared as cartoons in the New York Evening Mail. It uses melodic and rhythmic patterns - with help of conventional and unconventional percussion as well as verbal effects from the band members - to convey a unique attempt at inventiveness. The enthused percussion section will use instruments such as a metal pipe, kitchen pans and a bicycle horn.

This dashing work in one of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's more frequently heard German Dances (K. 605, No. 3), which he specifically titled The Sleigh Ride. The composition was originally written during the last year of Mozart's life in 1791. That year was one of his more productive years, composing other well known masterpieces such as The Magic Flute, Piano Concerto in B-Flat Major, The Concerto for Clarinet, and his very last composition, the Requiem which he finished only twelve of the fifteen sections before his death.   German Dance captures the wonderful melodies, lively rhythms, and ingenious colors of Mozart's style. This is a charming arrangement with three separate bell parts bringing forth the festive sound of ringing sleigh bells. Arranged to re-create classical scoring, this joyful programmatic piece will be a favorite with young musicians and audiences alike.

THE COMPOSITION This work is based on impressions evoked by the novel Night by 1986 Nobel Peace Prize winner, Elie Wiesel. The work is not a chronicle of the novel, but simply an expression based on select thoughts concerning the subject and composed with the intent on offering those who perform and hear the work another dimension through which to contemplate the atrocities of the Holocaust. The novel is an account of the Nazi death camp horror that turns a young Jewish boy (Wiesel) into an agonized witness to the death of his family, the death of his innocence, and the death of his God. Wiesel s accounts of concentration camps and death marches evoke a gray, ethereal, almost other-worldly tonal scheme which provided the genesis for the work. Movement I The Evening Air: 1941, sets a mood of eminent evil. A brief portion of the Kol Nidre, a prayer reserved exclusively for high holy days, is the text set to a simple and reverent original chant-melody. The excerpt of the text from the Kol Nidre should evoke a feeling of fasting or a meditative state. Both secular and sacred traditional Jewish music contain an altered dorian scale aspect and the trait of the augmented second. A motive from the traditional Hasidic hymn Avinu Malkenu III is quoted as a brief portion of this movement. The highlight of this traditional melody is the interval of the augmented second. The octatonic collection (used as the basis of composition in this work) contains many of the traditional features common to Jewish music. In fact, the interval of the augmented second is often renotated as a minor third (a defining feature of the octatonic collection) which is also the opening interval of Beethoven s Fifth Symphony. During World War II, Beethoven s motive represented a call for freedom and rallied the Allied forces throughout the war. Although this transformed augmented second appears from the beginning of the movement, it is highlighted towards the end. Movement II Faith of a Child , is comprised of an original chorale which complements a traditional chorale melody associated with the pure and simple hymn Hiney Ma Tov. The text: Hiney ma tov uma naim, Shevet a him gam yahad. The translation: How goodly it is and how pleasant for brethren to dwell together. This movement is representative of the traditional faith held by those around the young boy, and the thirst for religious enlightenment and faith. The spiritual relationships of the youth become critical in understanding the night which becomes his future. The key center of E is retained from the first movement and refined as basically E minor. This represents the close relationship between the two movements on many levels. Movement III Darkness Descends; The Never Ending Night (The Loss of Faith) traces the descending darkness, all encompassing, which, in confusion, devours faith in the eternal Lord. The Sephardic hymn melody Adon Olam is briefly quoted as a representation of faith only to be quickly and completely devoured by darkness (the loss of faith). The text of Adon Olam is as follows: He is the eternal Lord, who reigned before any being had yet been created; when all was done according to His will, already then His name was King. And after all has ceased to be, still will He reign in solitary majesty; He was, He is, and He shall be in glory. And He is One; none other can compare to Him, or consort with Him; He is without beginning, without end; to Him belong power and dominion. And He is my God, my living Redeemer, my Rock in time of trouble and distress; He is my banner and my refuge, my benefactor when I call on Him. Into His hands I entrust my spirit, when I sleep and when I wake; and with my spirit, my body also: the Lord is with me, I will not fear. The melody to Adon Olam is stated within a musical texture that represents the death marches between concentration camps. With each step the faith is diminished and the darkness becomes more and more pronounced until all that is left is torture in a chaotic and meaningless world devoid of faith. The Allegro section of the work is representative of confusion. Trains, marches, the military machine, etc. are all part of the layered energy of this section. The ending is reminiscent of the first movement, but should seem rather empty and devoid of life. The ostinato figure in diminution is not resolved at the end of the work, just as the novel leaves the author s faith striped away and at an uncertain personal end.
