    Program Notes
    Angelic Voices was commissioned by the Byron Center Band Program, Byron Center, Michigan, for the Byron Center High School Percussion Ensemble. The work is inspired by the angels who dwell around and within us. The first four stanzas of the poem The Angelic Voice by Victoria Heby expresses this quite well:

    Angels are around us
    every day, and every night
    and you can hear their whisper
    if you are in your delight.

    They talk about the light that shines,
    and darkness, which holds space
    they complement each other
    in the essence of Its grace.

    The Light is everything that is
    the knowledge that we know
    the things that we appreciate
    the seeds we like to sow.

    The Darkness is potential
    for future yet to come
    the nothingness, and unexpressed
    the Essence being home.

    The metallic sound of the bells and vibraphones combined with the warm, woody sound of the marimbas expresses the wonder and mysteriousness of the angels who are ever-present in our lives. Fluctuating tonality, sweeping melodic lines and colorful chord progressions enhance the ethereal ambiance of the work.
