The Second Suite for Band was written in 1961 for the Camden, Arkansas, High School band.  It is in three movements, each designated to express a form of physical motion, as in Gigue, Dirge and Entry.  The Gigue should be performed in a joyous mood of the dance, with the Dirge in the somber contrast of a funeral march.  The Entry should be approached as any ceremonial processional.
