Pathways of Promise

A beautiful medley of three Hymns:  the Lutheran Advent Hymn "Lo, He comes with Clouds Descending;"  the communion hymn "What is this Bread;"  and Anglican hymn "O, Taste and See (Psalm 34)."  The melodies of these hymns are blended throughout the piece with the grandiose recapitulation of the advent hymn which brings the medley to a close.  An interesting element is the use of the communion hymn as a bridge between the three hymns.

Category:  Concert Band,
Composer:  Jorge E. Garcia

Price:  $40.00

Performance Notes: 

The key signatures are well within the abilities of the middle school to high school band going from D minor to F major and back.  Rhythmic complexities are some syncopation and the use of 4/4 and 3/4 meter.  The first theme is introduced by a lovely flute solo then flute duet.  The key signatures provide some challenging passages for the Clarinet players.  The rudimental percussion part is typical for the compositions of Dr. Garcia and the snare drummer will find them challenging and interesting.
