Battle Quest
Mike Forbes

Battle Quest
Battle Quest has a feeling of a video game or movie soundtrack, with vibrant, powerful themes. However, it is still very playable for developing bands. Mike Forbes has penned a piece that will make your group sound much more musically mature than their experience.

Bridges
Alan Lee Silva

Bridges
From its commanding opening phrase, Bridges sets a regal tone in an Americana style as the full ensemble plays the introduction with power and energy. The work creates contrast with more staccato, dance-like articulations but the piece always returns to the strong opening material. It is signature Alan Lee Silva at his best!

Chant and Ritual Dance
Joseph Compello

Chant and Ritual Dance
Using only the notes of the C-minor scale, Chant and Ritual Dance is an undemanding yet useful showpiece for a young band. This composition draws its mood from the brave opening statement that is reiterated in the Chant portion of the piece and also becomes the basis of the Ritual Dance.

Dominion
Sean O'Loughlin

Dominion
Dominion is a composition for the developing band that captures emotions during the time of war. The term “dominion” is often used in history to describe British rule, and in science fiction, it is used to describe certain ruling factions in space. Either way, a call to action is necessary to preserve the dominion's rule. Sean O’Loughlin taps into the student's love for forceful, cinematic-type music with this exceptional piece.

Written by two of the most popular composers of band music today!

Epic
Larry Clark

Epic
Epic is an intense composition for the developing band. It contains all of the thumbprints that have made Larry Clark’s music so popular for young bands: sweeping and catchy with a contagious melody that the students will want to play again and again.

Nordic Vision
Bill Calhoun

Nordic Vision
As the title implies, the piece depicts the sounds of the Nordic people. The piece opens with a mysterious flute or recorder solo to set the tone, followed by a more dance-like second section. Nordic Vision is lush and rich; full of mystery and wonder. A suitable choice for contest or festival.

O Christmas in Three
Joseph Compello

O Christmas in Three
O Christmas in Three is a medley of three traditional 3/4 time carols: “O Christmas Tree,” “Away in a Manger,” and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.” In addition to the three main tunes, this adaptation also includes an interweaving of “Silent Night” and “The First Noel” with “Away in the Manger.” Young bands will gain experience in independent part playing and balance with the interplay of these familiar tunes.
