1861 Eric Whitacre Concert Band1861
1861 is a lyric hymn/fantasia for young concert bands, based on the beautiful 19th century Anglican hymn “Lead Me, Lord” (written in1861 by Charles Sebastian Wesley). The hymn itself features a gorgeous melodic line over biting harmonies and striking counterpoint, and provides the pillars for this work. First is a soloistic treatment, followed with a dramatic full band tutti, and finally a section of evocative humming. Throughout are unique textures and colorful improvisitory accompaniments.
