During the recent events of gun violence, I felt compelled to write the Procession in D Minor music collection for orchestra/choir, wind ensemble/choir, and 4 piano quartet. I had just finished writing Procession D Minor (for Orchestra and SATBB Choir) and decided to include it on this album. Procession in D Minor (for Wind Ensemble and SATBB Choir) was composed to honor those victims of gun violence. As the title implies, it is like a funeral procession. Although there is an undeniable sadness to it, that sadness is musically framed with boldness and courageousness, building continuously to its climactic end symbolizing our honor and tribute to the fallen, and that their memories and our love for them will never be forgotten.

This cinematic song builds dramatically with each instrumental layer added throughout the song's journey for a cinematic climactic ending. The first layer begins with percussion then upper woodwinds. The second layer consists of bass instruments. Third layer adds trumpets and horns 1, 2, 3. Fourth layer adds choir singing epic ahs. Fifth layer adds woodwinds and with new melody motif. Sixth layer adds haunting orchestral tubular chimes. Seventh layer adds secondary melodic motif in counterpoint to first melody. Eighth layer adds trumpets, horns, and choir singing/playing 3rd melodic motif in counterpoint to the first and second melodic motifs taking piece for a climactic end.
