  • March 10, 2009 Challenging and loads of fun!

    This has to be my favorite song to play. It has so much contrast in the sections and it is so intense. We played this song for our band contest in our district of Christian schools, and I'm so glad that we played this song for my last contest...

    . The story behind this wonderful song is so powerful and sad. I enjoyed every minute playing this song.

  • August 20, 2008 Lots of Fun!

    This piece was the hardest I'd ever played, and I enjoyed the challenge. The rest of the band- especially the percussion- had lots of fun with our limited equipment!

  • August 03, 2002 Extravagant work of music!

    This is a very well written piece of music. It has that contrast throughout that makes it a very nice piece. At the beginning it is very jolly, and it changes thoughout the song. It is an excellent piece of music. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a...

    challenging yet flowing piece of music. Excellent work of art.
