Take a close look at this powerful contemporary work, which makes use of two contrasting thematic statements to exploit the many rich timbres and rhythmic resources of the symphonic band. A highly chromatic, slow middle section leads to a chant, sung by members of the band on the syllable Ah in sustained, exotic-sounding harmony, which adds remarkable depth to the work! The percussion writing is also extremely effective. A strong choice for concert or contest!
