For Soloist(s) with Concert Band (Piccolo, Flute 1/2, Oboe 1/2, Bassoon 1/2, Clarinet in Bb 1, Clarinet in Bb 2/3, Bass Clarinet, Alto Saxophone 1/2, Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone, Trumpet in Bb 1/2, Trumpet in Bb 3, Horn in F 1/2, Horn in F 3/4, Trombone 1/2, Trombone 3, Euphonium,). Band Music. Grade 5. Score and parts. Duration 9:50. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.11830).
Building on the work Quintessence, Gillingham adds a first movement that utilizes more mallet percussion and woodwind in flowing themes and soft harmonies. A stark contrast to the second movement which has a decidedly jazz feel in the solo parts.
