Arranged by Roland Barrett


Transport your audience back to medieval times with this spirited and bold work for young band. The noble opening instantly conjures images of a world where magic and chivalry abound. As tempo picks up, the entire ensemble drives forward as layer upon layer is added. A beautiful lyrical section builds to a powerful impact before the piece moves to a final section beginning with a trumpet ostinato that alternates between 4/4 and 2/4. As layers are added at different speeds, the piece builds to a dramatic conclusion!
