This valuable edition provides comprehensive information on selected wind band works that were inspired by and incorporate hymns, chorales and spirituals. It includes music from all performance levels, historical periods and diverse styles. In addition to a general analysis of each piece examining the composers treatment of original source material the authors present an overview of the hymns, chorales and spirituals that focuses on historical background, notated music and lyrics. An excellent resource for conductors, students and enthusiasts. Timothy and Phyllis Pauls research into the works included in this book must now be an important influence on the score study, rehearsal, and performance of each composers creation.
