Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is the 15th volume of an ongoing wind music recording project that the Wind Symphony began in 1993. They have recorded 145 works, including numerous premiere recordings. The Wind Symphony has reached audiences beyond the scope of Concordia University Chicago's campus through its concert tours. This venue has provided listeners throughout the world the opportunity to experience, over and over again, the uplifting sounds of winds, percussion, organ and voices that boldly give glory and praise to our God. In choosing repertoire, it is my goal to include those pieces that represent the highest quality of musical expression within this sacred realm. For members of the Church, they provide an on-going music ministry of sacred works that are Read more frequently inspired by familiar hymn tunes. For band conductors - and their students - we hope that they provide a model for the performance of these works. For radio listeners worldwide, these recordings continue to be broadcast for the enrichent of faith and enjoyment for all who listen. The conductor, Richard Fischer, hopes this music has a message that teaches and inspires. Most importantly, he hopes this music willl be used in the service and praise of God. Read less
