The Final Covenant

for Symphonic Band or Wind Ensemble

Series: Boosey & Hawkes Concert Band Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes Score & Parts Composer: Fisher Tull

As the title implies, the work expresses the deep religious emotions of the promises made by God to mankind. Two thematic elements are employed: the first, a dramatic proclamation, is introduced by horns and subsequently taken by trumpets and woodwinds; the second plaintive theme, in the manner of a supplication, is presented by oboes followed by flutes and clarinets. The first theme returns leading to a climactic section by the full ensemble. A development section focuses on fragments from the principal theme culminating in a brief brass fanfare based on the earlier accompanying motives. The recapitulation of the principal theme brings the work to a quiet and peaceful close. (8:00)
