From the pen of Washington Irving (1783-1859) came a classic tale of American folklore entitled The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. This story describes how an old legend may have played a part in the disappearance of the local schoolmaster, Ichabod Crane.
This musical work illustrates the harrowing experience of our hero, Ichabod Crane, as he tries to escape the fate that was cast upon him on that dark and scary night. The introduction also illustrates the unsettling feeling Crane has as he departs into the darkness. Once convinced he is being pursued, he darts forth suddenly on his horse, Gunpowder, and the chase begins. The very last measures of the piece illustrate the moment of impact. The story also suggests that Brom Bones, a character who competed with Crane for the affections of a local maiden, may have been the perpetrator of the horrible prank. But Irving ingeniously hints at this supposition and leaves the reader to ponder the mystery of the legend.
