This gem from 1985 has steadily become one of the classic repertoire pieces for young bands. Even though it is heavily cross-cued making it suitable for smaller bands, this beautiful work is rich in melodic content, varied scoring, and marvelous counterlines and harmonies. An effective performance vehicle that also teaches legato style and musical sensitivity. Dur: 4:00 (Grade 2.5).
