Warrior Peace

Conductor Composer Stephen P Brown completes composition #6 in his 7 year questThe sixth composition in a massive 7 year project to compose 150 new pieces of music based on each of the psalms in the Bible.

This piece took over a month to write (almost double its allocated project time) but seems to be well-worth it.

There are six sections in accordance with Psalm 144, which this composition is based on. There are flute and timpani solos and, interestingly, is written for a normal chamber orchestra except the string players! I like section B particularly, and the Harry-Potter-Brass-Band-like joyful tune at the end.
