    One of the most popular pieces for percussion ensemble ever written, Stained Glass has been performed by high school and university groups the world over since its premiere in 1994. It's one of 'the big ones', requiring a sizable ensemble of sizable talent.

    Throughout three continuous movements, the 12 players (11 percussion + piano) will find themselves dealing with a multitude of time signature changes, key changes, and very exposed parts that are all challenging to play accurately and musically - particularly for the xylophone player.

    David R. Gillingham's composition is also popular because it's audience friendly, based on modal melodies and ostinatos that are both artistic and graspable. Stained Glass would be sure to make a wonderful closing piece for any percussion ensemble concert. A capable pianist is required.

    From the composer:Stained Glass is a work for percussion esnemble inspired by the beauty and color of stained glass. The work is cast in three continuous movements. The first movement, Foyers, is so named because of its reference to the many variations of stained glass found in the entrances of dwellings. As doorways lead to the main living areas of homes, so does this movement serve as a sort of 'prelude' leading to the other two movements. The second movement bears the title Cathedrals and seeks to create the mysteriousness and grandeur of the many great cathedrals of the world which are laden with a multitude of stained glass. The final movement, Sun Catchers, begins joyously in the bright key of E major. If one can imagine all the radiant colors which are reflected by a variety of multicolored sun catchers, then a mind set for this movement can be achieved. - David R. Gillingham
