Relive the story of several American clipper ships that established numerous speed records. The opening heroic line in the trumpets is supported by countermelodies in the upper woodwinds before giving way to a somber middle section complete with a clanging ships bell. The end brings back the energy of the clipper ships as they race toward a heroic ending. This one is sure to have instant appeal!
