Program Notes

The original Ayres were inspired by the famous victory in the 1400s of the English over the French at Agincourt, France, and are intended to sound like old English songs that might have been sung by King Henry's men.

- Program Note by publisher


Dedicated to Arthur E. Farr and the 1993 Southern California School Band and Orchestra Association All-Southern Junior High School Band.
