Inspired by the tragic loss of the astronauts abroad the space shuttle Columbia, Encomium for the Courageous is a mature work celebrating their heroism and valor. Beginning with a memorial based on "taps," the music leads into a heroic fanfare, then into the "courageous theme" portraying resilience and persistence. The fourth "hymn" section is intended as a prayer for the lost, and is followed by a brilliant reprise of the "courage" theme. Expect the audience to explode with applause.
