Starts out with a bold and powerful "Ceremony" section which features a drone in the lower instrumentments, it then segues into the bright and energetic "Chant". After the slow and expressive "Ritual" follows with a recapitulation of the "Ceremony" and "Chant" sections. Lots of percussion parts which will keep your drummers interested and involved. An outstanding selection for any concert or contest performance.
