Opening with the powerful sound of open 5ths, this work transports the listener back to ancient times and life in a magnificent castle. Experience the festivals and celebrations that would often occur as the infectious melodies work their way through all sections of the orchestra. Exciting and jovial!
Ruins and ancient castles fill the countryside of Ireland, Scotland, and England. These castles, which were anything from splendid buildings to simple towers, were fortresses used for defense against invading enemies or were large estates for the wealthy. Many famous landmarks and historical castles are restored for tourists, while others are privately owned. Most still lie in ruins or can only be found in historical records. Reminiscent of another time, castles still hold various festivals and celebrations such as Beltane (May Day) and Samhain (fall harvest) to share the culture of the ancients with the modern world.
