Concert Band, Marching Band, Full Orchestra - Early Intermediate - Digital Download
Arranged by Peyton T. Starkweather. 21st Century, Contemporary Classical, Spiritual, African. Individual Part, Score. 33 pages. Published by P Music (S0.429495).

Item Number: S0.429495

This piece is intended for Field Opera: an orchestral Marching Band featuring theatre, ballet, and strings. This piece is elegant and suited for Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, and of course, Marching Band.
The piece is one minute long and is meant to be suited next to other Egyptian features, such as the other movement of The Sands of Time. In the second movement of The Sands of Time, we further into Egyptian mythology with a cross arrangement of Go Down Moses, an African American Spiritual about the Harriet Tubman, whose codename was "Moses" among the slaves at the time and "Aquarium," by Camille Saint-Saens from Carnival of The Animals.
At the surface level, the concepts of these pieces have nothing in common, but musically, their melodies are quite similar. The piece is beautiful and catchy, despite its literal and lyrical meanings, although we can use this as a tool to delve from our time into an Egyptian fantasy.
