This sparkling work draws on Smith's many creative reserves at the peak of his compositional stride. The work is a deep well of noble melodic themes, inventive scoring, coloristic passages, and a kind of bravura at Allegro con brio that sounds today like a movie score. An accessible and extremely satisfying work for festivals and adjudications.

We are proud to present this compelling work that won the NBA/Merrill Jones Composition Contest for Young Composers.  The composer was still in high school when he wrote this sensitive work of substance for winds and percussion; it displays a keen sense of color and creativity as well as a high level of artistry.  The clear and evocative writing is reflective of the composer's talent and imagination.

Always With Grace, commissioned by the Lloyd C. Bird High School band, includes references to Amazing Grace. Not meant to be an arrangement of this wonderful melody, it is instead a tribute to this favorite hymn. From the opening bars of driving eighth-note rhythms through the solemn and lyric middle section, the concept of "time moving forward" is represented by numerous musical devices. As the composition concludes, the full hymn is heard while an off-stage saxophone quartet and metallic percussion sounds "tick away" to an intriguing, unique conclusion.

This energetic, imaginative work presents the popular patriotic melody of America in an assortment of musical variations. Beginning with a brilliant, very American fanfare, the basic theme follows in a highly rhythmic, multi-metered setting, which leads to several other contrasting presentations, including a lyrical tuba solo and beautiful chorale settings, all which lead to a stirring finale.

The medieval plainchant melody Divinum Mysterium is used as the source material for this piece, as its melodic elements are constantly varied throughout.  Beginning in a slow, stately tempo as it might have been heard in a cathedral in the middle ages, the initial setting ultimately gives way to fast, driving rhythms which support more and more variations on the tune.  The arch-like form of the plainchant's final phrase is mirrored in the brasses three times within the piece, the most dramatic of which occurs near the end as Ancient Hymn Tune Variants reaches its exciting and triumphant conclusion.

Arioso was written for and dedicated to the Hayden High School Concert Band, Topeka, Kansas. A slow, expressive, sustained work, it was written to help develop intonation, expressiveness, and phrasing, and for the limited instrumentation of that ensemble. (It has been rescored for a full instrumentation.) This piece can succeed with a limited instrumentation, and most certainly by bands without the instruments that were addeD. ( 4 minutes 30 seconds).

This work was commissioned by the Lampasas High School Band, Lampasas, Texas, Richard Hooper, Director, in memory of their classmate and friend, Chris Cruz, and his father and sister. Chris was a saxophone player, Eagle Scout and junior in high school. He was a much-loved member of the high school band and this work was commissioned in honor and memory of him. The title refers to Chris' favorite time of the year: the end of summer, band camp, the start of school, the start of fall, football games, band competitions and all the other fun times that come along for high school band students "as the days become shorter." Energetic and driving, much like the life that Chris lived, this work is meant to be a celebration of his life and spirit.

Before Their Time commemorates the tragic passing of two students in a car accident. The lives of youth are precious; when we lose them abruptly, the loss is magnified. The expressive opening captures the bittersweet emotions before moving into a more active section that reflects all the energy and vigor of youth. The natural energy of the music builds to a glorious moment as two musical climaxes punctuate the poignant conclusion.

The decidedly religious overtones of this work bear a strong resemblance to the sacred melodic content in the wonderful hymnbook The Southern Harmony. Occasional offbeat diversions from the main theme allow a natural energy to alter its character. Quasi-religious chordal passages and lighthearted comic sections lead to the joy and excitement of the extended finishing coda.
