SKU: [1602]

Three Old Carols for Band is a transcription of Christmas Suite for Orchestra [9804] made at the request of Larry Klabunde for performance by the Westerville Concert Band in December, 2016. Three movements are based on historic carols: 1. The London Waits ("Past Three O'Clock on a Cold, Frosty Morning"). 2. Huron Carol (Jesous Ahatonia) attributed to Jean de Br├ębeuf (1593-1649) and 3. Patapan (attributed to Bernard de la Monnoye 1641 - 1728). The English horn has prominent solos in the second movement.


Weait - Processional for band (5'40)

SKU: [6110D]

The Processional is my first extensive, non-class-assignment composition. It was written in the days between exam week and my college graduation in June, 1961. It was performed later that summer by the Westchester Pops Band at the Kensico Dam Plaza in Valhalla, New York. It has gone through a number of revisions since then. One observant musician thought it typical of pieces written in the 1960's with quartal and quintal harmonies.
