Following a brief introduction, Mount Signal starts with a monothematic march divided by a short fife-and-drum-like bridge. The following monothematic trio starts with a drum into, the trio theme, a short bridge, and the trio theme again. My profound apologies are offered to the spirit of James Pierpont for stealing as my trio theme the verse portion of his “Jingle Bells” (albeit with a changed rhythm). This was entirely an unconscious theft, and was brought to light only after the fact by one of my band director friends. The use of the woodwind figures in the first repeat of the trio imitating Sousa’s “Semper Fidelis” trio woodwind figures, however, was completely deliberate. If one is going to steal, one should at least steal from the best!

As for the name of the march: Mount Signal is a mountain sitting astride the United Sates/Mexico border in the southern Yuha Desert of Imperial County, California, and the northern Mexicali Valley of Baja California, Mexico. It is the view each morning as I look out across the back yard garden of my home in rural El Centro.
