Just as the process of forging turns metal into something spectacular, this piece uses the same idea of shaping and hammering sound into a finely crafted musical product. Metallic percussion, short fanfares, and long melodic phrases are put through this same process, constantly refining the musical material until the final product emerges in an impressive presentation. This flexible version will provide directors with adaptable parts for a variety of situations.
Re-arranged for SATB flex instrumentation with optional percussion parts.
