...AS IT IS IN HEAVEN (Fanfare and Processional) for Band with optional Organ and Strings
Commissioned for the centennial of Marywood Catholic University in Scranton, Pennsylvania. This work is now part of the ceremonial music at the university for graduations and convocations and features an opening fanfare, a march strain, an interior hymn-like section, and stretto section that bridges the hymn to the grandiose recapitulation with the organ.
"In November of 2014, it was our pleasure at Marywood University to have Mr. O'Toole serve a residency on our campus. He counseled our students who were interested in composition and conducting as well as providing valuable feedback at our Wind Ensemble rehearsal. Most importantly, his composition ...As it is in Heaven (Fanfare and Processional) was was premiered on our concert. The work was commissioned by the Marywood University Centennial Project for the 100th Anniversary of Marywood University. The work was well received and has become an import component in Maywood's musical culture."
