Stone Gardens is inspired by the beautiful and peaceful gardens of heroes lost and fallen. Beginning with a solo trumpet that conjures memories of conflicts present and past, the piece continues with a beautiful hymn statement paying homage to those that have made the ultimate sacrifice. A bold and aggressive statement follows with musical inspiration drawn from campaigns and continents around the globe. Suitable for festival performance, Stone Gardens also includes an optional narrator for use at memorial and ceremonial concert events. A wonderful new addition to the repertoire for bands of all levels.
