Commissioned by the distinguished Northshore Concert Band under the direction of Mallory Thompson, Let the Amen Sound is based on Joachim Neander's 17th-century chorale "Lobe den Herren," known in English as "Praise to the Lord." The hymn tune is stated first by a solo flute, accompanied by percussion and muted trumpets, evoking the sound of liturgical bells. Three variations follow that represent important milestones common to human existence - the playful exuberance of childhood, the sentimental dance of youth, and the triumphant celebration of lives well lived. A dramatic and rewarding addition to the wind band repertoire. Dur: 7:00 (Grade 5)
