Concert Band

Ceremonial Dances

Composed by

Gregory Danner

This setting of four English renaissance dances is in the great band tradition of Holst, Jacob, and Vaughn Williams. The four movements feature music in a variety of tempi and styles. A final coda at the end of the shanty brings back the glorious pavane melody in strong brass chords for a dramatic ending. With strong melodies and bold harmonic writing, Ceremonial Dances offers students and directors a new work in the British band tradition.
