This issue has everything to do with anniversaries as we have included two works written for the centenary of the Chicago Staff Band (1907-2007) by James Curnow and Kenneth Downie and a pastoral commemorating the eightieth birthday of my father, William Himes, Sr.

Pondering this happy coincidence caused me to realize afresh music's power to mark time and help us remember. Romantics will remember the song that was playing on their first date - especially with the one who became their spouse. Families will wistfully recall songs that were near and dear to their parents. And many of us will remember the song that touched our heart the day we became a follower of Christ.

As with all Salvation Army music, may these pieces, written to celebrate God's faithfulness and blessing, continue to be a means of drawing listeners and musicians closer to Him.
