Bold and powerful with contrasting lyrical sections, the legend of Excalibur comes to life with this new work. Although it only uses the first six notes, the piece has layered parts and there is plenty to work on (articulations, contrasting styles, counting). Students will enjoy the full sound and loads of percussion that are standard in Robert W. Smith's writing (including timpani, gong, and brake drum). An awesome selection for your first or second year players! (3:03)
