  • July 08, 2007 A Powerful and Moving Work

    "Elegy by Beckham is a powerful and moving work. It was written while hiking the Appalachian Trail. Though it is elegiac in nature it has enough substance that it appears on a number of state required lists for high school music contests/festivals. I believe Wingert-Jones has rated it...

    easier than it really is. It is a least a III in difficulty, perhaps a III+. It is musically satisfying enough to be programmed by advanced or professional groups. It has an optional harp part. The Double Bass line is challenging during the introduction and is left without the help of cellos at times."
