Title: When The Tears Fell
Voicing/Format: Concert Band
Publisher: C L Barnhouse Co
Composer: Huckeby, Ed
Catalog #: 012-3478-00
Grade: Gr-4 Hs A
When the Tears Fell is a musical depiction of the tragic relocation in 1838-39 of the Cherokee people from eastern states to the west during which over 4,000 men, women, and children died. The piece is in four distinct sections - The Gathering is the period of spring and summer 1838 when the Cherokee were gathered by the military into stockades and encampments. This section introduces a theme in the horns that returns throughout the piece representing the enduring spirit of the Cherokee. The Journey is a lively, driving section utilizing a characteristic pentatonic scale and percussion effects. The Harsh Winter during which most of the deaths occurred is evoked using plaintive, somber melodic lines and dissonant harmonies. Spring: A New Nation celebrates the rebirth of the Cherokee including the reestablishment of the tribal government with an elected legislature and a bilingual school system. This is a fine option for contest and perfect for correlating lessons in U.S. history.
