MARCH BAPTISTE uses the two gospel tunes I'll Fly Away and When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder as the framework for a happy and toe-tapping march medley. Everyone gets a chance to play a melody, even the tubas. And woven among the three sections of the piece are excerpts from eight other gospel hymns. Audiences will enjoy keeping score of how many tunes they can identify.

CHALLENGES: Clarinet noodle line of eighth-notes on first strain; balance, accents, articulations for all parts; 2 key changes (from concert 3 flats, to 1 flat, back to 3 flats); snare solo (2 measures).
