heartfelt work was written for a school in Texas and
remembers the tragedy at Fort Hood in November 2009.
The lyrical lines mix with a whispering military drum
cadence and concludes with a haunting version of Echo
Taps, which is followed by a sensitive harmonic
treatment of the melody. A final dissonant, soft fanfare
in the trumpets leaves the audience with a sense of
awe. Extremely thought provoking.
