    Program Notes
    Leslie Condon (1928-1983) before he became an officer in the Salvation Army, was a postman who attained several music diplomas from distinguished music establishments in conducting, arranging, musical knowledge and music harmony. He was for many years prior to his sudden death in 1983 an important and influential member of the International Music Editorial Department where his quality compositions were regularly published by the Salvation Army.

    The Splendour of Youth was one of the last pieces composed by Leslie Condon and is typical of his style: a strong melody line, well-wrought contrapuntal lines, rhythmic features and a colourful harmonic palette. He was much interested in the development of music in children and young adults and this piece reflects the vitality that such a group brings to their performance. Each movement has a central melodic theme that that has been developed to form each part of this suite.
