    Program Notes
    Prophecy of the Earth is a symphonic poem for band and organ, which was commissioned by the J.J. Pearce High School Band, Matthew McInturf, conductor.

    Hear the cry of the Earth!
    Heed Her tale of woe!
    Havoc and destruction
    She has to come to know.

    Care for and nurture
    Her mighty expanse,
    And render eternal peace
    And life advance.

    - David R. Gillingham
