This work seeks to explore the idea of light shining through darkness. The music begins with lyrical somber sounds that linger from one phrase into the next, but then give way to bright, joyful and exuberant music. The sections of the band take the listener on a journey that explores a variety of emotional qualities, returning to the somber sounds of the opening of the piece. But once again, the music regains its uplifting character and presents the familiar hymn tune "How Brightly Shines the Morning Star" to bring the piece a brilliant conclusion.
