    Hymn for the Lost & the Living, A (Gekker)

    20th Century. Conceived originally as a work for wind band, this arrangement by Chris Gekker portrays those painful days following September 11th, days of supreme sadness. It is intended to be a memorial for those lost souls, gone from this life, but who are forever treasured in our memories. - the composer

    Beginning with the simple melody of the solo trombone, this solemn work features lovely chorale writing with extended chords, rich accompaniment with running arpeggiated lines, a short section with contrasting march rhythms, poignant shifts between minorand major tonalities, and final dark, dissonant chords resolving to octave Bbs. Duration is approx 8:50 minutes. -pc
