This work was written as the opener for the New York Staff Band’s 125th anniversary concert in Carnegie Hall, March 2012. Based on the song “Ever is the war cry”, the music is quite militant in nature, which is a direct reflection of the text. While the composer pays homage to the pas in this fitting salute, the overall musical style is decidedly that of the 21st century.
