Program notes:

It was composed in autumn 2002 in response to a request from the wind band I belonged to at the time for a piece that could be used for the opening of a concert.

This piece was strongly influenced by the American brass band music I was familiar with at the time and may not have been more than a 'study', but it certainly led to 'in Just-', Prelude for Band in 2003 and 'Salutation', An Occasional March in 2004(both published by Golden Hearts Publications). It certainly led to the motifs and melodies used in this piece would have a major influence on my later works. For me, this piece was the 'music of beginnings' in that sense.

Although the piece is less than three minutes long, I made several attempts to revise it after its premiere. During this time, I would particularly like to mention the useful advice I received from Dr. James Ripley, former President of WASBE, mainly about orchestration.
