Second Suite for Band
SMC S139FS/ HL 3776622
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.
