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 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.

This vivid fanfare features rousing brass motives, dynamic woodwind flourishes and active percussion, all combining to create an explosive concert opening statement. Beginning quietly, the action builds quickly, accelerating into a spinning sonic dynamo that truly befits the title. Every section has actively rhythmic parts that keep the action moving forward. Technical demands kept at a very playable level while occasional time signature changes dart and weave throughout this musical thrill ride.

Nova Stella: New Star Fanfare is based on the chorus of the traditional English carol Nova! Nova! Ave Fit Ex Eva. The fanfare begins with three or more antiphonal brass players placed throughout the concert hall. Large percussion forces, which include optional parts, are used to help introduce the rest of the ensemble as they join in the musical celebration. Then the combined efforts of all the performers coalesce into an overwhelming expression of unbridled joy.

Scarborough Fair is simply one of the most beautiful and haunting melodies of all time. This setting of the melancholy tune captures the mood of a gray and rainy afternoon, perfectly matching the sounds of gently falling rain and distant rumbles of thunder. Though not essential, recorded sound effects of distant rain and thunder can be added, making it even more impressive and appealing.

The music of Revolution is bold and restless and, like most revolutions, combines passionate, hopeful and anxious undercurrents. Mounting levels of musical tension build relentlessly like a restless mob that grows as it charges through the streets, leading to the initial statement of the melody. A quiet waltz-like section slows the action, gradually taking on a more anxious and almost sinister nature which then charges forth to the frenzied conclusion.

This memorable Civil War-era folk song has a distinctively haunting quality that one can't help but be affected by. The moving melody opens the piece on a slightly melancoly note that leads to the main, spirited middle section that glistens with good-natured rhythmic activity. Adding to the authenticity, the entertaining addition of washboard and spoons brings this catchy bluegrass tune to life, helping us connect to this delightful American folk song.

The aptly named Wonders of the Season combines well-known Christmas melodies in a variety of styles. Opening with a bold setting of O Come, All Ye Faithful, almost every section of the band is featured as fragments of a number of different Christmas melodies are layered on top of one another throughout. Other carols presented are God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen and Silent Night, with Angels We Have Heard on High closing the work in a regal and majestic manner.
