Product Description

Sacred Harp Composed by Jay Bocook. For Concert Band. Published by Hal Leonard Publishing Corp. (Catalog # 04003155, UPC: 884088651121)

Commissioned for the 2012 South Carolina All-State High School Band, Jay's impressive three-movement suite based on melodies from the early American Sacred Harp singing tradition is a masterwork of dramatic orchestrational devices. Stratfield opens with a striking statement by the saxes and double reeds, then builds intensity using woodwind flourishes and soaring brass lines. Idumea begins in a quiet and delicate manner then gives way to thundering percussion and striking harmonic effects. The joyous Pisgah has a barn dance quality that provides the perfect conclusion to this powerful work for winds. Dur: c. 8:00
