"Homily" by Mark Wolfram is an original composition for concert band. It is dedicated to his father, a former preacher, on the 100th anniversary of his birth.

A homily often means a sermon concerning a practical matter, a moralizing lecture or admonition, or an inspirational saying or platitude. In this "Homily" you can hear the calm presentation of the premise, the detailed explanation of how it applies to the listeners, a fair amount of finger wagging - some bluster and a loud, pounding fist for emphasis - and then it slowly returns to the original premise, develops a little more and ends with a not so reassuring "amen."

"Homily" is a GRADE 5 concert band composition which features independent rhythmic motion, colorful sonorities, time signature changes, tertian, quartal and serial composition in an exciting blend which is both intellectually satisfying and aesthetically pleasing. The work has a duration of approximately 6:20.
