A modern, three-movement work composed in 1975.   These are moderately difficult but playable by most groups with adequate rehearsal.

Performance Notes

The first movement is in two tempi. Bars 1 thru 22 are in Tempo I. Bars 6 thru 9 are equal to one beat each. Bars 23 & 24 accelerando to Tempo II. There is a pause at bar 30 while the Tuba mute is removed. The next bars are cadenza-like. Tempo II returns at bar 34 where, as before, the sixteenth note remains constant. Tempo I returns at bar 38. At bar 59 the Trumpets remain at Tempo I while the Horn, Trombone, and Tuba begin a brighter 6/8 march tempo, repeating the two-bar phrase until the Trumpets reach the fermata. Then the trombonist gives the cue for bar 63. The movement concludes in Tempo I. 

The second movement is in tempo until bar 22 where, for five bars, the tempo and duration are ad-lib except the quarter notes are to be played in strict order. The holds at 27 & 28 should be fairly short and the tempo returns at bar 30.
