Program Notes


Fantasia on Ein Fest Burg (1987)

James Curnow, composer

This piece was commissioned by the St. Joseph Michigan Municipal Band in honor of its conductor, John E. N. Howard. The word "rejouissance" is a French word meaning enjoyment or to be glad or to make happy. Mr. Curnow felt that this Fantasia on Martin Luther’s Ein Fest Burg (A Mighty Fortress is Our God) would be a fitting tribute to Mr. Howard.
