5M Egyptian Coronation

This piece builds on a dance like ostinato pattern. We used the words, ‘This is ostinato’ to help remember this ‘dotted’ rhythm. The music builds up as we imagine the royalty approaching.  When the Pharaoh arrives the trumpets and cymbals blast a fanfare to the rhythm of ‘Here comes the King!’ The piece ends dramatically with high recorder trills.
