This Quest I Take, Nathan Cahill Concert Band Grade 2
The notion of a ‘quest’ has always had the romantic tones of adventure with uncertainty, overcoming adversity, and rising above the odds to win the ultimate prize!
This piece paints the same emotive picture: after a solemn opening (as the Quest is accepted), the band moves into a theme pulsing with energy, with an ever growing sense of momentum.
As with any Quest, there is a moment of uncertainty when the outcome is in the balance, however this resolves through the final push, ending with a resounding statement of success.
Featuring call and response block harmonies, and an energetic, syncopated motif, “This Quest I Take” will be a popular concert or contest piece for developing bands!
