 Wonderful music April 4, 2019 By Marilyn H. (Burlington, NC) See All My Reviews "My grandson played one of Husa's pieces in a concert and I liked it so much I checked your site to see what I could find. Was delighted to find this collection. It has the one I heard, which I very much wanted to hear again, plus some other band music that I like even better. The Texas ensemble sounds wonderful and I even liked the liner notes, where Husa describes why he so often wrote for wind ensembles. Many, many thanks for giving me so much pleasure!" Report Abuse
