Hymn to Boston

three minutes
for wind ensemble

Year: 2020

Duration: three minutes

Difficulty: Advanced/Professional

Instrumentation: wind ensemble

HYMN TO BOSTON was originally written for wind ensemble as part of my suite, URBAN IMPRESSIONS. It proceeds with slow, reedy, dark, hymn-like music, painting the antique nature of much of Boston’s centuries-old architecture. A featured trumpet plays a quasi-patriotic melody, layered with an old Boston tune, hinting at the historic reverence encountered while visiting the city.
