Rejoice in Glorious Hope

Another in a series of symphonic works based on a chorale; this being Rejoice the Lord is King. Strong rhythmic patterns in percussion and woodwinds against a melodic motive boldly stated by the brass open this intense concert work. A calm development section in the middle featuring solos by euphonium and trumpet leads to a full lush statement of the chorale before ending with powerful ensemble writing above driving percussion. A truly masterful setting for the symphonic concert band.
