Description and multimedia

Glory! was written for the big band elective at music camp in the Netherlands several years ago. The traditional big band rhythm section was used (piano, bass, and drums) alongside all the instruments within the brass band except for the basses. The horns, baritones and euphoniums represented the saxophone section.

At the request of Howard Evans, bandmaster of the Amsterdam Staff Band at the time, the piece was rearranged to function without the need for the big band rhythm section. It has now been rescored and adjusted to make it widely available for a smaller group.

The tune Glory to His Name is treated in such a way that should bring a smile to the face of the listener. The third verse speaks about the joy we experience once we have let Jesus into our lives:

O precious fountain that saves from sin,
I am so glad I have entered in!
There Jesus saves me and keeps me clean,
Glory to His name!
