|Silent Service (V.105)
Symphonic Band Grade V
Dedicated to the Submariners of WWII
An evocative world of muted sound and thunderous effect set the stage for this one-movement work devoted to portraying the oft-forgotten world of underwater warfare.
Submariners were some of the most valuable military forces during the second world war, and this work attempts to depict, through broad gesture and nuanced detail, the blindness, the cold isolation, the utter vulnerability and superior power which were the submariner's only companions; allies and demons, silent in the depths of the sea.
