This dramatic work is sure to be a big hit with students, especially when they realize it was written by one of their peers! A mysterious chant gives way to an energetic theme as the music moves into the powerful ritual characterized by intense percussion. The haunting nightfall returns to the contemplative sounds of the opening before the final section slowly builds into a powerful statement signifying the Last Rite. Intense!
