Concert Band Conductor Score & Parts
Mystic Call - King/Rhea
Texas A&M University Wind Symphony – Timothy Rhea, Conductor
Composed in 1913, Mystic Call was dedicated to Charles Duble of Jeffersonville, Indiana, who was also a composer of marches and an excellent low brass musician, having playing trombone with a number of circus bands during the early part of the twentieth century. As for the title, it is from Masonic ritual, with Karl King having been very active in the Masons and Shrine. Like most of the King marches composed during this period, it was written for circus use and contains exceptional parts for low brass, requiring a great deal of technique if performed at true circus tempo. The trio scoring is somewhat more lyrical in nature than many of King’s marches.
