THE RISING CATHEDRAL by Robert James Dvorak describes a mysterious mythical cathedral rising slowly from the waters of a lake. An interesting program work that appeals to the imagination of the young musicians. Written in 1943 when the composer was stationed with the USMA Band at West Point, New York. The giant bells gradually become louder as each player helps to bring the magic cathedral to the surface. Concert Band. Instrument Parts. Grade: 4 Duration: 6:00
