Stained Glass is an absolute classic for percussion that has become a staple in the repertoire. Cast in three continuous movements - Foyers, Cathedrals and Suncatchers - the piece was inspired by the beauty and color of stained glass and the various places you might find it. The publication received a makeover in the summer of 2010 with newly formatted parts, complete with proper page turns and cues.
Stained Glass is a work for percussion ensemble inspired by the beauty and color of stained glass. The work is cast in three continuous movements. The first movement, Foyers, is so named because of its reference to the many variations of stained glass found in the entrances of dwellings. As doorways lead to the main living areas of homes, so does this movement serve as a sort of 'prelude' leading to the other two movements. The second movement bears the title Cathedrals and seeks to create the mysteriousness and grandeur of the many great cathedrals of the world which are laden with a multitude of stained glass. The final movement, Sun Catchers, begins joyously in the bright key of E major. If one can imagine all the radiant colors which are reflected by a variety of multicolored sun catchers, then a mind set for this movement can be achieved. An absolute classic you should not overlook! You can hear a recording of Stained Glass on David Gillinigham's CD, 'Stained Glass' (also available from C. Alan ).
