From Quinn Mason

This brass sextet, modeled after Philip Glass' early composition (1962/1964) of the same name, is set in three distinct movements. The first, Hymn, is a solemn chorale which explores the blending qualities of the brass instruments. The second, Ballad, is a slow and tranquil tune which features solos across the entire ensemble. The third and final movement, Lively, is a bouncy and light scherzo in an American style with recurrent fanfare motives.
