"No soldiers choose to die. It's what they risk being who and where they are. It's what they dare while saving someone else whose life means suddenly as much to them as theirs. Or more. To honor them, why speak of duty or the will of governments? Think first of love each time you tell their story. It gives their sacrifice a name and takes from war its glory." These poignant words by the poet Dr. Samuel J. Hazo are matched equally with appropriately dignified music composed by his son, Samuel R. Hazo. This music for concert band with narrator is respectful, reverent, and reaches a depth of emotion that will touch the hearts of your audience.
