TAPS 2016 for brass quintet

Today, Taps is most often associated with military funerals, but it was originally used to signal the end of a soldier’s day. It was in that sense that Taps was played at Cazadero Music Camp when I was a camper there in the 1970’s. Every night, Taps sounded as darkness arrived, each night a different arrangement. Those sounds echoed throughout the camp, nestled in the quiet redwoods on both sides of the Russian River in Northern California. This version recalls my anticipation of what version of Taps would be played and the glorious sounds those players made.

Transposed Score Duration: ca. 1:30 -3 minutes Version: 10/7/18
