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).
