A bold exploration of syncopation and ostinati, "Veritas" (Latin for "truth") opens with marted chords and a unique pealing pattern, then settles into the driving rhythms of the main theme. Slow motion marting of all notes during rehearsals may be helpful in developing precision as an ensemble. A second, calmer theme introduces optional chimes. Appropriately, "Veritas" ends on a positive note, with uplifting peals and a grand C major chord. Appropriate for church, school, or community groups, this piece will be an inspiring choice for worship, concert, or festival settings.
