Concert Band Score



Written for the centennial of Loyola University, New Orleans and premiered by the Loyola University Band on April 12, 2012 with the composer conducting. This fanfare is based on a motive from the Jesuit motto “Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam” (“to the greater glory of God”) and is based on the notes A, D, G. The fanfare opens with timpani, a tintinnabulum of bells and brass, and wolf calls in the horns. A martial hymn tune appears which evokes the soldierly order of Ignatius Loyolas early years. The work closes with a rhythmic ostinato based on the words “Fight, fight, fight, ye men of the South!” The composer is a graduate of Loyola and received an honorary Doctor of Music degree in 2005.
