This concert opener was written for the Canadian Staff Band’s European tour, which culminated in its attendance at the ISB120 event in London, June 2011. The tour included some time in Holland and, appropriately, the well-known Dutch hymn “We Gather Together” was selected as the source material for this work. The melody is used in a couple of different settings before reaching a rousing conclusion.
