For thousands of years, amid turmoil and grandeur, the Nile River has remained a stable and life-giving presence in the land of Egypt. Michael Sweeney hints at sounds from these ancient times as he depicts dances of celebration, awe-inspiring pyramids, invasions and conquest over foreign armies. Brief solos with delicate accompaniments counterbalance bold themes and powerful percussion statements in this substantial work for young bands. An element of rhythmic vitality is pervasive throughout, representing the steady and constant flow of this mighty river of life.

    For once there is a piece that challenges and includes the percussion section without taking away from the rest of the group. The piece is not that difficult, but is an impressive concert piece. Everytime I've performed it, people walk away talking about it. LOVE IT!!!!
