This piece is all too timely for a country at war. The text asks many important questions about bravery, freedom, liberty and protection. Such questions offer opportunity for meaningful class discussions or writing assignments. Joseph Martin’s music is reminiscent of his well-known “The Awakening,” telling a dramatic story with expressive use of the piano and voices alike. The climax of this piece is sure to move your audience. Medium

Piano (Orchestration available for 2 horns, 3 trumpets, 2 trombones, bass trombone, tuba, timpani and percussion)
