The wolf god of the Paiute Indians and a red stone mountain formation in Zion National Park in Utah are the basis of this work. Modal melodies and prominent percussion bring it to life. Unison rhythmic figures make the more difficult rhythms easier to teach and provide contrast when a counter-line enters toward the end of the A-section. Perfect to push your ensemble to the next level! (2:45)
