This work was commissioned by the Austin (MN) High School Concert Band (my alma mater) and received its premiere in 1991 under the baton of Brian Koser. It is based on my hymn Let Us Raise Eternal Alleluia's. The work is fairly challenging for high school ensembles and has received most of its subsequent performances by college and community bands.
