Instrumentation: Symphonic Band (full score)
Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes (New York)
Each movement of this composition instrumentally reflects several of the different manners in which the human voice produces sound and becomes a vehicle of communication. The first movement portrays a dialogue between several groups represented by different sections of the band. The second movement begins quietly, swells to a climactic level, then concludes with the peacefulness of the beginning. The final movement is a joyous celebration of the human voice's ability to sing. Very pleasing to play and equally interesting to listen to - an uplifting selection for any concert program.
"Eine sehr schöne, nicht allzum schwere Klavierbegleitung, der sich eine Solo-Klarinette anschließt, wird wom Wispern der Orchestermitglieder umrahmt. ... Alles in allem drei gut gelungene, thematisch interessante Kompositionen."
