Being a composer of wind band pieces I might tend to have an ecclectic taste in music. So here goes.

Trittico - Nelhybel
La Fiesta Mexicana - Reed
and the mountains rising nowhere - Schwanter
From a Dark Millenium - Schwanter
Festival Prelude - Reed
Austrailian Up Country Tune - Grainger
Chant & Jubilo - McBeth
Kaddish - McBeth
Symphony #3 - Giannini
Incantation & Dance - Chance
Songs of Heritage - C. Williams



Really? I'm pretty familier with Clifton Williams stuff..I've never heard of "Songs of Heritage."

ahhh....I LOVE Winds of Poseidon...I've never played it, but it's such a great piece to hear. I hope I'll play it sometime before I'm done with band.

I handled that beast of a bassoon part with a skipping cd!

Songs of Heritage was the last piece Wiliams composed before his death. I believe it was scored for band by one of his students at the Univ of Texas. It is a wonderful piece of music. I am planning on doing this year with my middle school band.

I found it on a program for the Ashland, Oregon City Band, It lists W. Francis McBeth as the arranger.

Yes, I just read about it on line too. It appears it was not actually "completed by Clifton Williams before his death" but was left as just a sketch, or series of sketches. McBeth put them together and finished them...just how much is unknown. The two men were good friends.

I have never heard it, but I must say by the description printed in the catalog it doesn't sound very "Clifton Williamsish." I'm sure it will turn up on CD soon enough.

I would like to add "Graysondance" by Holsinger.
It sounds like the theme from "Jonny Quest" in overdrive!

I just played Wild Nights with the SJSU Wind Ensemble, it was a pretty fun piece.

A new favorite of mine is "Give us This Day" by Maslanka. It's so beautiful.
