Sketches On A Kentucky Hymn Tune Composed by Todd Stalter. For Concert Band. Published by Alfred Publishing Co Inc. (Catalog # 24656, UPC: 038081269078)

Chosen for its artful simplicity and interesting harmonies, the hymn Salvation provides the basis for the various settings that make up this work. Beginning with simple statements of the tune in call and response form between the brass and woodwind 'choirs' within the band, the theme is then set in varying keys and tempi. Rhythmic variety, contrasting articulations, and call and response figures are present throughout, and this work is a great introduction to theme and variations compositional form.
