To Set the Darkness Echoing (Windependence Artist Level (Grade 5)). By Dana Wilson. For Concert Band (Score & Parts). Boosey & Hawkes Concert Band. Grade 5. Boosey & Hawkes #M051661718. Published by Boosey & Hawkes (HL.48019270).
This intriguing composition, marked by its innovative sounds and haunting orchestration, is a tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr. The composer's intent was to capture the way Dr. King inspired profound change by leading us to see how we, not others, were behaving – and thus “set the darkness echoing,” according to the words of poet Seamus Heaney. This dramatic and thought-provoking piece will truly inspire. (8:00)
Recorded live by the Georgia District 12 High School Honor Band – Richard Clary, conductor.
