Creider - Veni Vidi Vici Suite (Digital PDF Download)
The Veni Vidi Vici Suite pays homage to the composer's late father, James (Pappy) Creider, who was the ground crew chief for the B-17F bomber, Veni Vidi Vici, for its 32 missions while stationed at Knettishall Air Base in England with the 562nd Squadron of the 388th Heavy Bomb Group of the 8th Air Force. The suite consists of 4 movements. Played together these movements meld together as one piece. But each movement can be played as a standalone as well. The target audience for this suite includes, but is not limited to, high school bands, university bands and community bands. Running time for the entire suite is 19:39.
This narrative song is a re-telling of the story of David and Goliath from 1 Samuel: 17. It describes the wonder of the crowd, marveling first at what they regard as the impunity; and later at the bravery of David as he kills the Philistine giant. Edwards's setting employs both rhythmic and harmonic choral ostinati and intersperses David's calm reasoned statements with the mutterings and exclamations from the crows as they observe the scene.
