- Scenes from the Holy Land
To $44.00Flute and Percussion: "Commissioned for the McCormick Duo and the 30th Anniversary of the National Flute Association. Percussion instruments (one player) include: Marimba, suspended cymbal, tambourine, bongos, wood block, wind chimes, and agogo bells. “The opening section, ‘Masada’ presents angular solos against percussion accents, with ascending legato passages for the flute. The music turns more florid and Middle-Eastern in style before a peaceful coda. ‘Storm on Mount Sinai’ offers sharply rhythmic music accented with tambourine and a more febrile bazaar-like flute writing. ‘The Flock by the Sea of Galilee’ contains an oddly memorable five-note percussion motif under a lovely bucolic flute theme. ‘The Road to Jerusalem’ makes a haunting finale with elaborate passages against pulsating percussion. Scenes from the Holy Land is an effective and colorful work with deftly varied music and tackled by the musicians with skill and understated virtuosity Buss’ intimate style requires. It makes its effects with point and economy and would be a boon to flute and percussion duos searching for program material.” - The Gramophone, April 2005. Recorded on the Capstone Records ""Howard J. Buss: Modern Times""" Learn More
- The Old Story About Her
This song is about a woman. Not a specific woman, but someone that you have memories of in your heart. The story is about the woman's life, from youth, love, the hecticness of life, and the end.
The opening theme is the leitmotif of the storyteller. This phrase happens in variation many times throughout the piece. This piece is very lyrical and will require the performer to extend their phrasing skills to the limit.
- Sonata for Trumpet and Piano
To $40.00with Piano: In 3 movements: Con Forza, Adagio, and Allegro Pesante. Inspired by the neo-classical “Gebrachmusik” of Hindemith, this early work by the composer builds upon the traditional sonata form. Contrasting themes in the the first movement are developed and combined in numerous manners within a modified sonata allegro form. The second movement uses a derivative of the Russian folk tune, “Bears Are Sleeping” for its second theme within a ternary form. The third movement contrapuntally combines and develops themes in a virtuosic, modified rondo. Sonata for Trumpet and Piano has been recorded by Grant Peters on the CD “From the Hills.” Learn More
To $34.00with Piano
Constance is a piece composed for Nicholas Kevin Phillips, a saxophone player I met at the University of Central Florida, as a personal thank you for his generous donation to my “Get Matt to Maryland” Rally via rally.org. The inspiration for this work is the constant drive required to get where we want our lives to go. This is represented by the striving baritone saxophone melody. It evolves slowly, reflectively, aiming for the heights – a celebration of success and joy. The celebration is short-lived as we realize we have not yet arrived and that we are farther away than we initially thought… Learn More
- Whale Dive
“Whale Dive” is a series of short musical postcards inspired by observations of whales and their unique movements and abilities. The three movements may be performed together attacca or separately if desired.
The first movement “Surface” follows the massive creatures up from the depths and slowly into view above the water with a long rising theme. As the mammals begin to move about towards the surface, the passages become more intricate but always stay legato displaying the whale’s massive appearance but peaceful nature.
The second movement “Breach” transforms the theme into a fun multi-meter dance as the whales begin to jump and play. This movement uses the entire range of the tuba as the whales jump up and down and should be played as lightly and joyously as possible to show the carefree nature of the animals splashing around.
The third movement “Deep Dive” captures the dramatic yet graceful nature as the whales head back to the depths. The movement builds to several climaxes just as the whales arch their backs, dive down, and flash their tails before disappearing beneath the water in one last “farewell”.
Performers should be encouraged to add “whale noises” to the beginning or end of the written music. I hope this piece works to capture the spirit of these majestic aquatic mammals and remind us of the importance of protecting their natural habitats so we can enjoy their beauty for years to come.Learn More

To $136.004 Trombones and 8 Percussion: The character of this music is strongly influenced by jazz and Latin music. The intriguing rhythms and soaring melodies combined with the implied theatre suggested by the staging, make this a sophisticated, yet accessible composition that is rewarding to perform and listen to. The 4 trombone parts may be performed with a quartet; however, it is desirable to have multiple players used on each part except in those areas where the score specifically specifies one player on a part for a particular passage. The unique instrumentation of this ensemble, combined with the prevalence of numerous colleges and universities that have trombone choirs and percussion ensembles, make this a concert work that is destined to become standard literature. "Somewhat contemporary sounding, with jazz and Latin influences, one's interest is held for the entirety. The two instrument families are well integrated throughout. Some sections are extremely lyrical in the percussion ensemble and rhythmic in the trombones, vice versa in others. This compositional technique allows for great clarity throughout the work. An enjoyable work for the performers and audience." -Susan Martin Tariq, Percussive Notes Magazine. Dedicated to Tom Brantley and Robert McCormick. The University of South Florida Trombone Choir and Percussion Ensemble premiered it in Tampa, Florida on January 21, 2012 under the direction of Robert McCormick. Learn More

- Six Dialogues "Reflections on Plato"
To $34.00Flute and Horn; Few other authors in the history of Western philosophy can compare with Plato in the depth and range of his work. His dialogues have long highly esteemed in their treatment of justice, virtue, and love, as well as political, religious, and other social concerns. Socrates is most often the protagonist in the dialogues with his dialectic method of inquiry, a rigorous conversation consisting of short questions that lead to the heart of any matter. At odds with Socrates are the sophists, teachers whose mastery of rhetoric, the art of persuasion, seeks to convince the listeners to accept their propositions without critical inquiry. Each of the "Six Dialogues" is a reflection on one aspect of Plato’s dialogues: The Dialectic, Hymn to Love, Virtue, Rhetoric, Justice, and The Sophists. Learn More
