Fanfare on Amazing Grace

for Concert Band

Adolphus Hailstork (composer), Donald C. Patterson (arranger)
Piccolo, Flute 1, Flute 2, Oboe 1, Oboe 2, Clarine...


Originally composed for solo organ, Hailstork’s fanfare is a 3½-minute explosion of joyous sound inspired by the Baroque-era tradition of Chorale Preludes. As in Bach’s organ preludes, the familiar hymn’s phrases broadly emerge from ornate counterpoint, here in the form of brass fanfares. The result is exhilarating! Also scored by Hailstork for chamber ensemble and for orchestra, FANFARE ON AMAZING GRACE was transcribed for concert band in January 2021 by MGySgt Don Patterson, staff arranger for “The President’s Own” United States Military Band, for that ensemble’s worldwide broadcast performance at the 2021 Presidential Inauguration.
