Finally, I have almost finished putting this piece to rest. All I have to do now is write the sleeve note for it for the rest of my marks for my Music AS exam.
As you can hear, I've made a lot of changes and also added a more satisfying recapitulation, giving the piece more structure. The lead has been replaced from a trumpet to a clarinet for the Prince, but the other three themes stay pretty much the same.
Here's what I have so far for my sleeve note (I'll update this space when I have finished):
"The Night before the Battle
Three kingdoms have waged war on each other for years in the land of Quisterre. The Great nation of Valdulus, lead by The Great Prince; the Bleak nation of Deprauls by a Doleful King; and the Dark nation of The Evil Baron King, Diaborra.
The Great Prince fell in love with The Doleful King's daughter, The Beautiful Princess, and wished to marry her; which would lead to some peace in the land. However, before this happened, The Evil Baron King had The Beautiful Princess kidnapped and foiled The Great Prince's effort to unite Valdulus and Deprauls to push back the malevolence and sin that infected Quisterre, under the guile of The Evil Baron King. With The Doleful King in tears over the danger his daughter has been inundated by, The Great Prince valiantly steps up to rescue his Beautiful Princess.
With his force assembled, they battled through the land, annihilating all enemies that stood between The Great Prince and his love; fighting courageously and without rest.
At last, The Great Prince approached The Evil Baron King's disdainful castle, his forces rallying closer and closer, finally resting and lying in wait for the dead if night.
It is now, The Night before the Battle,
Whence comest thou, Great Prince of Valdulus?
There is feud, two great forces must settle,
No one would ever be more courageous,
Than the Great Prince that of Valdulus.
"Vast force! Go the fields of Diaborra,
Wait we in time, to ruin our devil's,
Lair yonder and to take back the daughter
Of sorrowful ally nation, Deprauls."
So cheesy and generic. Well, I think so anyway, but none the less, a nice enjoyable piece to listen to :D Do enjoy!
