PROGRAM NOTES
They Flew Away (and are now at rest) is an elegy dedicated to the many brave pilots who lost their lives in service to our country. The mournful tones of the solo trumpet speak not only of the sorrow at their loss, but the nobility and courage they displayed as the most famous fighting power in military history.

This work is recorded by the USAF Heritage of America Band on an album titled “Portraits,” Maj. Larry H. Lang, conductor, and also on an album by the Augustana College Band, Dr. Bruce T. Ammann, conductor.
