Music by Gary Fagan
Alfred Concert Band
This new work by Gary Fagan is sure to produce shivers up and down your spine! Introduced by a haunting woodwind motif that plays during the majestic trumpet opening, the mood quickly changes to that of joy and celebration. The mood changes in the middle section, introducing a beautiful melody in the woodwinds, which is then shared by the brass, with a stirring countermelody in the horns. An abbreviated A section returns followed by a restatement of the opening trumpet theme which brings this piece to an exciting conclusion.
