Concert Band

By the Sword

Composed by

Brian Drake

This imaginary tale of the exploits of a heroic warrior conjures up vivid images of a bygone era.  Strong melodic lines are constantly shifted through the ensemble, supported by an intense percussion score your young percussionists will love playing.  The sounds of battle and clashing swords are vividly portrayed in this wildly descriptive work, culminating in a majestic return home after an intense series of battles.  This vivid work is designed to totally engage your students and audience!
