CCXXV (225) is a short wind ensemble piece written in 2012 for the celebration of the bicenquasquigenary of the founding of Franklin & Marshall College. It has been performed by the Franklin & Marshall College Symphonic Winds on campus several times, including at Convocation and during Common Hour. A fanfare-like opening and closing surround a more introspective middle section that contains several musical references to the Alma Mater of the College, written by Garrett W. Thompson in 1908.
