Noten für BlasorchesterPrayer and Jubilation
Prayer and Jubilation is, in many ways, characteristic of this composer's unique style and sound. Stamp has the ability to transform the most simple hymn into a complete journey for winds and percussion. His harmonic vocabulary and fresh approach to rhythmic writing clearly sets him apart from his contemporaries. The piece begins with a statement of the hymn. Following this prayerful setting of the tune, the remainder of the writing does in fact create an atmosphere of Jubilation. Prayer and Jubilation affirms the ability of the wind band to display a great range of emotions within the framework of one piece.
