Premiered at the 50th Anniversary of MENC (now NAfME) in San Antonio by the United States Air Force Band who commissioned it, the composition met with immediate and overwhelming acceptance. "Festival Variations, with its brilliant technical passages coupled with its glorious romanticism, will certainly rank as one of the monumental compositions of the 20th century." - Col. Arnald Gabriel, Commander/Conductor, The United States Air Force Band (now retired). Although extremely difficult, many fine bands throughout the world have added this great work to their repertoire and perform it regularly.

This edition features newly edited and engraved score and parts. Not surprising for a piece of this difficulty and magnitude, questions arose about enharmonic spellings which created some discrepancies between the score and parts. In some cases, the parts did not match the score, which we believe was done either by Smith himself or by the copyist for the Air Force Band in 1983. With this revised edition, the score was established as the final authority, and any of the changes made in the parts were for reasons of clarity for the performer. We believe this final product is the most thorough in terms of harmonic spellings in the score and performance practicality in the parts.

One of several sacred arrangements done by Claude, this particular setting continues to be in strong demand. The hymn appears in several treatments through the band in both major and minor keys. Heavy percussion is combined with unison brass and contrapuntal low brass in the later verses. Using material from the composer's choral arrangement, a new companion setting offers the option of performing the work with full band and choral forces. A highly effective and thrilling piece.

An exceptional work based upon the well-known hymntune.  Both musical and sonorous, the composer extracts every ounce of power available in the spectacular conclusion.  Adding to the finale is an optional organ part, making it especially effective a concert closer.  This is one of several sacred settings available from the talented pen of  Claude T. Smith. (5 minutes, 45 seconds)

Commissioned by the Fresno (CA) State College Wind Ensemble, this is a demanding piece but worth the time and effort. Alto saxophone makes the theme statement with oboe repeating it followed by the entire group in preparation for the thrilling allegro. This rollicking section is not for the faint hearted, for it requires delicacy and subtlety along with passion to bring it to the exciting conclusion. A wonderful example of Claude Smith's composition abilities.

Smith Commemorative Edition, this Latin-flavored work includes a newly engraved score and parts with newly added solo cues making it accessible to a wider range of bands. We are very proud to reintroduce this true concert band classic.

This challenging piece contains a wealth of teaching material and is playable by most good high school bands!  The initial movement is a spirited tarantella featuring the woodwinds stating the melody against the biting rhythm of the brass and percussion. The nocturne movement opens with a fragment of the main theme moving through solo sections and growing to a climax, only to return again to fragments.  The vigorous and exciting rondo opens with stirring percussion, there is no letting up as the entire movement is aggressive and intense.

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.

Here is an exciting composition full of the multi-rhythms combined with the Smith harmonies that make his works unique. Following a jubilant introduction, the saxophones set the melodic line, which is augmented by the full band. Brass pyramids lead into a slow lyrical section with French Horn backgrounds. A modulation follows leading into a recap of the opening theme. The driving percussion pattern is soon augmented by more instruments building to a dramatic finale.

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.

A most appropriate title since it well describes the composition. The opening is a fast movement stating the theme throughout several sections segueing to the slower middle movement involving bassoon solo before returning to the allegro. Muted trumpet with moving clarinet background precede the brass mixed meter and into the full band lyric statement ahead of the exciting finale.

Opening with a legato tempo featuring colors of the band, the piece develops with a short statement by horn and flute, which precede the rhythmic section. The use of the 7/8 bar is especially effective with the full ensemble treatment. A slow section shows off the band before the driving finale in this excellent contest work.
