Description

Based on a mid-1800s folk tale from "No Man's Land" in Texas, this engaging original composition captures the imagination, depicting sinister livestock rustling and even a little horse thievery. This compelling work uses shifting dynamics, an introduction to aleatoric notation to build the musical intensity, and a chance for one trumpet to depict the stolen horse's whinny. A delightful addition to beginning band literature.
