A memorable old Irish jig called Road to Lisdoonvarna is the basis of this piece for young bands. Beginning lyrically with a simple statement, it gradually adds more instruments as it builds to the sprightly middle section. With the full ensemble playing the tuneful melody and the driving Irish rhythms in the percussion section, you hear all the color and flair that's characteristic of great Irish folk music.

Edgar Allan Poe is perhaps best known for his writings on Gothic topics, darkness, and early forms of science fiction; he almost single-handedly created the genre we now call the detective story. This work effectively captures the darkness that so poignantly defines Poe, the writer. The slow, brooding introduction captures the dark moods that characterize so much of his writing. The second section envisions Poe as he desperately writes, one step ahead of the poverty that always seemed just one heartbeat away. A chilling portrait of this famous literary figure.

Also titled Aria With Diverse Variations, this monumental opus for harpsichord was composed and published late in Bach's career. Few works have excited scholars, performers, writers, and audiences more than the Goldberg Variations have. The composition represents a unique blend of complexity, beauty, and massive scope. In this setting, the aria and all 30 variations are presented in different combinations of instruments making it the perfect vehicle for featuring various chamber ensembles within the larger performing group. It is a significant contribution to the list of serious repertoire for wind bands. This transcription was performed prior to publication as part of the memorial service for Lorin Maazel at his Castleton Festival Theatre in Virginia in 2014.

The music of A Golden Legacy reflects both the joy and reverence many of us feel in our role as transmitters of the band tradition. The legacy in the title refers to the long-lasting impact directors have on students' lives. This piece alternates between two themes - the first is a majestic fanfare that develops into a purposeful and resolute march; the second theme is a reverent hymnlike chorale that undergoes several variations, with the last one erupting into a festive musical celebration for an exuberant finish.

This fanfare is a short musical travelogue of one of the composer's favorite interstates, I-77, as it weaves through the beautiful Appalachian Mountains. The music motors along at a steady pace as changing landscapes of sound approach, come into view, and pass into the distance - then another musical vista appears on the horizon. The underlying rhythms, incessant and determined, prove it's not the destination that's important but the journey.

Melodies, harmonies, and riffs patterned after rock and roll songs accompany this upbeat treatment of the holiday classic Jolly Old St. Nicholas. The drum set is emulated by separate percussion parts, but an actual drum set can be used, maybe with Santa himself (or someone in a Santa suit) playing the set. Rock on Santa!
