Scored for Trumpet, Organ

This elegantly crafted suite of five movements begins with the musical leitmotiv, "Taps" (Day Is Done). This evocative tune is first paired with the evening hymns Ar Hyd y Nos, Merrial, Tallis' Canon and Eventide (betraying its original use).

It is then woven through tone poems, which reveal the official hymns of all branches of the Armed Forces, and such patriotic favorites as Materna, America, The Star-Spangled Banner/National Anthem, and Battle Hymn of the Republic.

The heroic final movement is composed of the Easter tunes Easter Hymn/Worgan/Lyra Davidica, Duke Street, and Victory/Palestrina, and then concludes with a haunting re-statement of the leitmotiv. Parts for opt. Trumpet included.
