The majesty of the great North is put to music in this carefully scored composition in three movements. The first movement, "Pride of the Northland," is broad and flowing in nature. Lower woodwinds and brass begin the melody and upper woodwinds contrast with a soulful counter melody. "Native Beauty," the second movement, is relaxed and sweeping while the third movement, "Harvest Celebration," features a strong trumpet melody, exciting full-band scoring and a vibrant conclusion. Throughout the work there are simple melodies and rhythms layered with sonorous counter melodies which sound more difficult than they really are.
