"Prayers of Concord" - Written for the East River Mountain Town Band of Bluefield, WV, Prayers of Concord is a work that implores concord, or unity, for us all. Our country has seen a divide over many issues, and notwithstanding the current pandemic that separates us from our loved ones. This piece, with melody and countermelody and thick harmony, conveys the need to come together in this turbulent time in concord, to make things better for the future. A simple 3 note melody is expanded upon and explored by the ensemble, culminating in the ensemble coming together at the end for a celebratory statement of concord. This piece is also dedicated to the memory of Lee Courts, former bass clarinet player and MC for the East Mountain Town Band, who lost his life in a fight with Covid-19. Lee was a wonderful and kind person, an example for us all in a time when Concord is so greatly needed.
