Commissioned by the distinguished Northshore Concert Band under the direction of Mallory Thompson, Let the Amen Sound is based on Joachim Neander's seventeenth-century chorale Lobe den Herren, known in English as “Praise to the Lord.” The hymn tune is stated first by a solo flute accompanied by percussion and muted trumpets evoking the sound of liturgical bells. Three variations follow that represent important milestones common to human existence - the playful exuberance of childhood, the sentimental dance of youth, and the triumphant celebration of lives well lived. A dramatic and rewarding addition to the wind band repertoire. Dur: 7:00

Recorded live by the Northshore Concert Band – Mallory Thompson, conductor
