A Fraternal Prelude (1997) for band/wind ensemble was commissioned by the Morgan State University Band, Melvin N. Miles, conductor. A Fraternal Prelude is based on and inspired by the Kappa Kappa Psi National Honorary Band Fraternity Hymn, which was introduced to the fraternity by the Kappa Kappa Psi, Eta Gamma Chapter in 1995 and Nash believed it was most fitting to compose a new band/wind ensemble work for the Morgan State Univ. Band under that particular premise, as well as out of his friendship with Miles. The hymn itself is gospel-like in nature and Nash uses the saxophone section for this initial presentation. The remainder of this composition stems from the opening section. The melodies change mode, lengthen in augmentation and engage in call-and-response dialogue between instrumental sections. A Fraternal Prelude is also included on the CD Out of the Depths on Citadel Records, featuring the Keystone Wind Ensemble performing band/wind ensemble works of African-American composers.
