Marine Band Sacred Hymns, Songs, and Sounds

1st Lt. Darren Y. Lin, conducting

David Maslanka described the central driving force of his Symphony No. 4 as “the spontaneous rise of the impulse to shout for the joy of life.” His piece quotes the traditional hymn Old Hundred, as well as brilliant chorales of Johann Sebastian Bach. The related themes of reverence and celebration echo throughout the entire concert, particularly evident in the sound of “Crown Imperial” Coronation March and in the setting of Psalm 84 in and the swallow.
