Program Notes

Listen carefully to this new composition by Robert W. Smith. You may find it difficult to believe that it contains only the first six notes introduced in most major band methods. The Sword of Kings is inspired by the legend of Excalibur. It was composed as a concert or festival work for the beginning band. Whether at the end of the first semester or the first year of study, your band will sound surprisingly sophisticated while appealing to both performer and audience alike. Active percussion combined with engaging wind parts make this an excellent choice.

The Sword of Kings was written for Linda Gammon and the Rachel Carson Middle School Band of Fairfax, Virginia.
