 C There is an enigma in the composer's name as well as in the tide.
HC begins with wispy figures from a theme, gradually adds phrases,
then announces the theme with a solo baritone hom, and finally brings
the whole band into a Maestoso climax on the West Point alma mater,
"How can I leave thee?" That tune is sometimes called a German folk
tune, sometimes attributed to Friedrich Wilhelm Kucken ("Achi Wie
war's moglich dann"). It appears that somewhere along the line "Fred"
was misread as "Ferd." On a sheet accompanying the score, HC has
written: "Fantasie / Written in honor of the West Point Sesquicenten-
nial and dedicated to the U.S.M.A. Band and its leader, Capt. Fran-
cis Resta. The music explores possibilities of each segment of the Alma
Mater melody, from sadness to gaiety, from longing to religion, with
the idea that this melody may mean all these things to the Men of
the U.S.M.A."
