This remarkable composition is the second movement to Eric Schmidt's colorful and dramatic symphony for band. A dark and energetic work, Confession is based on a three-note motive, beginning with a menacing opening, but finally yielding to a beautiful chorale that provides a transition to a somber and reverent conclusion. Brilliant orchestration and well-crafted use of creative thematic material make this a most expressive work. Thanksgiving, the popular third movement of the Symphony of Prayer is also available and makes an excellent choice when performed following Confession. This title is available in SmartMusic.
