Author: Meyer, Richard

This simple, yet mature-sounding piece is sure to spark your students' imagination, taking them back to the exciting jousting tournaments of medieval times. The piece begins with a simple, fanfare-like melody depicting a procession of knights into an arena. In the second section, in E minor, we hear the ensuing contest, with the two battling knights represented by high and low voices moving in contrary motion. Driving eighth notes, minor and modal harmonies, and unexpected accents contribute to the excitement and energy. A great opportunity to improve students' reading on the lower strings, this piece is full of wonderful teaching opportunities, and is sure to motivate the young string orchestra! Correlates with String Explorer Book 1, Unit 12.
