Canticle of the Creatures

Series: Symphonic/Concert Band Series Composer: James Curnow

This distinctive six-movement suite is one of Jim Curnow's most requested works. Inspired by the writings of Saint Francis of Assisi, the suite succeeds in expressing his love for peace and his respect for all creatures. Each movement is a short tone poem that uses the modern concert band as the vehicle for creating spectacular musical images.
