This is the first published work of composer John Barnes Chance and is widely recognised and acclaimed for its wealth of rhythmic and melodic inventiveness. The work begins with an intriguingly strange introduction evocative of tribal ritual music. The Dance is a fast, exciting, syncopated section that will be a delight to the percussion section.
"I really enjoyed this piece, INCANTATION AND DANCE, (John Barnes Chance). I play the trombone at Westmoor High School, Daly City, Ca. I enjoyed this piece because the sound and tone of the band playing, was just amazing. I recommend this piece to all high school and college bands. This piece was original because Boosey and Hawkes published this. The articulation markings and staff, and notes, were VERY vivid and clear. I recommend you publish more and more pieces like, INCANTATION AND DANCE, in order to be successful! This piece was the best piece I've ever played in my entire life. I also enjoyed this piece because I got everything correct. My Name is George Stickles. Thank you for creating such a fabulous piece."
