    With skillful craftsmanship, David Gillingham offers you an opportunity to program a work that captures the serenity and beauty of daybreak. From the opening thin layers of sound, a broad, sweeping feel emerges, sprinkled with active lines depicting nature awakening. Developing bands will learn much from performing At Morning's First Light and will most certainly grow musically.

    1. Wonderful option for small ensembles

      This is a wonderful adaptation of this work for smaller chamber ensembles and those with limited instrumentation. David did not compromise his original setting and it still gives the audience the aesthetic they deserve. I have done the original work at honor bands and guest conducting visits, but I elected to this chamber setting with my own university students creating 3 mini wind ensembles doing various orchestrations of the piece. All three groups performed their setting and were elated at the different products. I highly recommend it.
