Familiar hymns, spirituals and folk tunes such as Amazing Grace, Simple Gifts, Now Thank We All Our God, etc. can be heard within many modern band compositions;Jack Stamp is one of the prolific band composers who uses hymn tunes as thematic material for original band works. Among the many original band compositions on this recording are Be Thou My Vision, Variations on Solid Rock, Held Still in Quick of Grace, Ere the World Began to Be, Variations on a Bach Chorale and more. Each setting by Stamp displays his fine scoring for winds and brass along with distinctive usage of percussion. The performances on this CD best represent Jack Stamp’s compositional mastery.
