Symphonic Songs for Band is a three-movement suite of dances or scenes as much as they are songs.

According to the composer, the name comes from the tendency of the principal part to sing out a fairly diatonic tune against whatever rhythm develops against the middle instruments.

This work represents an originality and imagination that embodies many of the elements that made America and American music unique during the mid-1900s.
