A cloud moves through the sky

Listen to a recording

This is the wind band orchestration of a choral work by the same name. Already an atmospheric piece (the text is about a small cloud drifting through the sky), the slow-moving chord progressions really lend themselves to be an excellent exercise in colour, combining the different instruments of the band together in a variety of different combinations.
