Processional - to Lauren and Mark

Play Garritan® Audio Track

This Processional was written for Gerry's daughter Lauren, and is dedicated to Lauren and Mark. The score is for a small orchestra, piano, organ, and handbell choir. This was performed using an audio soundtrack along with a live piano part.

There are two main themes used in the processional (and the recessional as well). The first theme is an adaptation of the melody used in the Euphonium Solo "Greenwood Air and Variations", written for Lauren when she was a middle school student. The second melody derives from the baby dedication song "In His Image", written for Lauren's baby dedication service. Both of these pieces are published on this website - see the Euphonium Solos page, and Baby Dedication Songs page.

Like Melissa and Corey's recessional, this one also has a slight reference to J.S. Bach's Sheep May Safely Graze in the short transition section. This comes from the cantata Was mir behagt, its our die mounter Jagd, BWV 208 (1713), and appears there as a soprano aria.
