1861

1861

Series: Eric Whitacre Concert Band Score & Parts Composer: Jonathan Newman

Level: 3

1861 is a lyric hymn/fantasia for young concert bands, based on the beautiful 19th century Anglican hymn “Lead Me, Lord” (written in 1861 by Charles Sebastian Wesley). The hymn itself features a gorgeous melodic line over biting harmonies and striking counterpoint, and provides the pillars for this work. First is a soloistic treatment, followed with a dramatic full band tutti, and finally a section of evocative humming. Throughout are unique textures and colorful improvisitory accompaniments.
