Ghosts of Pangea is about the coming together of musics of different cultures, mixing styles of Europe, East India, Asia, Africa and the Mideast. My intent is to show the commonalities of these seemingly disparate styles - the way Jewish folk music sometimes sounds like the blues, and East Indian music sounds Arabic. Such musical similarities, mysteriously developed independently of each other, suggest a psychological or spiritual bond between peoples at opposite sides of the globe.

Middle School Band; Score available for sale from Hal Leonard

J.W. Pepper Music named this piece from the American Composers Forum Band quest commissioning series one of their "Editors' Choice" selections for 2003.

"If you're looking for something that stands apart from the average band fare, take a look at 'Old Churches.' Intriguing thematic material and Colgrass' fine compositional style combine to make this a powerful, unique musical statement. Using easy graphic notation, students have a fun and creative way to explore sound production along with the compositional process. It' s quite an amazing work for this level, and one worth exploring." —The Editors, J.W. Pepper Music
