    Program Notes
    The Guide was written as a commission for the Metropolitan Wind Symphony after Taylor was named winner of the 2005 North American Student Composer Competition held by the group. The Guide was premiered in the May of 2007 by the Metropolitan Wind Symphony at the Lexington Heritage Museum in Lexington, Massachusetts.

    The Guide was written between May and December 2006. The work is dedicated to the idea of those individuals that provide direction and leadership for others. This person can come in a variety of forms, most obviously a guardian or a teacher. However, it is possible that a person's guide may simply be a set of principles and values. After reflecting back on his adulthood, thus far, the composer continually has expresses the importance of not only mentors who have helped shape his path, but the dedication to a certain set of ideals that provide steadfast guidance and direction. An exciting and haunting work, The Guide captivates the audience with its lush melodies and rich harmonic texture.
